INTRODUCTION 



This volume is entirely devoted to the bibliography of the Philippine 
Islands. In its narrowest significance, the term "Philippine bibliography" 
is restricted to the actual imprints of the Philippine Islands. By this term, 
however, we understand and include a much wider field -in addition to 
the above, all the printed books and pamphlets of any country dealing, in 
whole or in part, with the Philippine Islands; as well as all Manuscripts. 

Obviously, one cannot hope, much less expect, within the compass of one 
single volume, to cover the field as just outlined. Besides it is unnecessary 
to duplicate work that has been so efficiently done already. The recent bib- 
liographies published under the auspices of the Library of Congress, namely, 
those of A. P. C. Griffin and Dr. T. H. Pardo de Tavera, furnish excellent 
working bibliographies. The bibliographical works of Medina and Retana, 
although published in limited editions, are sufficiently accessible. The 
latest work of the latter, Aparato bibliograficoy offers the most extensive 
array of Philippine imprints yet listed. The catalogues (especially vols, 
iv and v) of Pedro Vindel, the Madrid bookseller, can be used to distinct 
advantage, and are easily obtainable. The Adiciones of Perez and Giiemes 
supplement Medina's and Retana's work on the imprints of Manila and 
the Philippines. Finally, the bibliographical comments of James A. LeRoy, 
published in The Philippine Islands, I4^J-l8g8, Vol. LII, furnish the 
most comprehensive practical working list of Philippina for the later period 
of the Spanish regime that has yet been attempted. 

It is to be observed that the above bibliographies, and all Philippine 
bibliographies generally, while they do note or publish some few MSS., 
with but few exceptions (notably Llorens Asensio's Primer vuelta al mundo) 
are devoted to the listing of printed matter. Consequently, it has been 
deemed expedient, in the present work, to limit our endeavors more directly 
to the field of MSS. - a field that offers so rich a source for the history of the 
Philippines. Yet, in order that one may find within our volume complete 
material for a thorough bibliographical survey of the Philippines, we have

devoted the first part of our work to printed titles. We make no pretense 
of listing the titles usually found in bibliographies. Our first object, as 
seen by the first three divisions of printed titles, is to point out the sources 
for a complete bibliographical study of the Philippines. Those three divi- 
sions are: I. Philippine bibliographies, and important bibliographical 
lists; -this in small compass covering the entire field of imprints, so far 
as bibliographies have been compiled. II. Other bibliographies; cata- 
logues of public and private libraries; and sales catalogues; -this division 
showing the recognition of Philippine titles by general and special bibliog- 
raphers; to some extent the ownership of Philippina; and the demand 
and supply as demonstrated by the sales catalogues. III. Books, pam- 
phlets, etc., containing bibliographical lists, notes, etc.; -this division 
showing titles in many different lines, some of great rarity and value. It 
must again be noted that we do not list the actual titles, but the sources 
where the titles may be found. The fourth division of printed titles is the 
only one that can be classed under the head of pure or general bibliography. 
This we have entitled "Books, pamphlets, etc. (mostly published in whole 
or in part in The Philippine Islands, I4gj-l8g8)" The fact that we have 
used them, in whole or in part, as documents for our series constitutes the 
first reason for their appearance. We have introduced here a very few 
titles that we have not used, because of their scarcity or importance for the 
study of the history of the Philippine Archipelago, such as, for instance, 
Rivadeneira's Historia of 1601. A special feature of the last division is 
the location of the rarer titles. However, we have made no attempt to cite 
prices, for since American occupation, prices have been more or less arti- 
fically raised, and the present price is not a sure index of the value of the 
books. To many of the printed titles, we append critical and other notes; 
and frequent references to the various Philippine bibliographies admit of 
a study of the critical notes of others. In this portion of our work, as in the 
manuscript division, we aim rather at the practical, and our attempt is to 
furnish a good working bibliography, and not one calculated merely to meet 
the tastes of the bibliophile. 

We have personally examined most of the titles of the printed material 
listed by us, a process that has involved an immense amount of work, in- 
asmuch as the various books are not to be found in one collection. This has 
necessitated research in many libraries; and we are able to assert that no- 
where else have bibliographical aids to the study of the bibliography of the 
Philippine Islands been so extensively cited. We have made no attempt 
to list the many books that we have used for annotation, unless such books 
contain bibliographical information. Many general bibliographies and 
many special bibliographies contain Philippine titles. Many catalogues

of private libraries also contain titles. Especially is this true of libraries of 
Americana, which generally list some Magalhaes and Pigafetta material. 
While we have listed some libraries of Americana we make no effort to list 
all of them. It should also be noted that the ecclesiastical provinces of 
the Philippines extended to China and other parts of the Asiatic mainland, 
so that it is quite natural to expect that bibliographies of China and Japan 
and other parts of southern Asia should often contain Philippina. The 
student should also note that many collections of voyages, ecclesiastical 
books, etc., contain Philippine matter. Some of the titles cited contain 
very few items of Philippina, but some are of great importance. In the 
arrangement of the titles to books and pamphlets, we have adopted the 
strict chronological order. 

For a study of the early history of printing in the Philippines, and its de- 
velopment, the reader will find useful matter in Medina's Imprenia en Ma- 
nila (Santiago de Chile, 1896); and in Retana*s Imprenta (Madrid, 1899), 
Introduction, col. 5-50. See also the rules of printing as published by the 
latter in vol. i of his Archivo. These rules were promulgated in Manila, 
February 16, 1857. ^^ seems reasonably clear that the printing press was 
established in the Philippines as early as 1593, for in that year, Gomez 
Perez Dasmarinas licensed the printing of the Christian Doctrine in Taga- 
log and Chinese (see his letter of June 20, 1593, in our vol. ix, p. 68), 
although no copies of this have come down to the present day. It must be 
noted, however, that from the language of the letter above cited, it may be 
assumed that the printing press had been established before the year 1593. 
However, the implied reasoning of Perez and Giiemes (Adiciones, pp. xxi- 
xxiv) following the statement of Beristain de Sousa, that the Arte y Vocahu- 
lario de la lengua tagala of Juan de Quiiiones was printed at Manila in 1581, 
cannot be supported. The real history of printing in the Philippines, in 
which it seems that the religious orders had more to do than anyone else, 
has not yet been written, although it is worth careful study. 

MANUSCRIPTS 

The bibliography of MSS. forms the main part of the present volume. 
Important as is our citation of authorities citing Philippine titles, we believe 
this to be our chief contribution to Philippine bibliography. We do not 
hesitate to assert that we have presented more manuscript Philippine titles 
than all other bibliographers together. In this we have naturally had the 
benefit of the work of all bibliographers and authors who have cited Philip- 
pine MSS., and to such we are naturally under obligations. However, we 
have ourselves personally examined the greater part of the MSS. cited by 
us, and thus are enabled to cite directly from the originals or our transcripts

from the originals. Especially is this true of the MSS. cited from the Ar- 
chivo de Indias, at Sevilla; those of the Real Academia de la Historia, at 
Madrid; other government archives of that city; the MSS. belonging to 
Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A., of Valladolid, and those of the Colegio de Agus- 
tinos of the same city; those belonging to Pablo Pastells, S. J., at Sarria; 
those of the Vatican; those in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; those in the 
British Museum; and in America, those in Lenox, the Library of Congress, 
and the Ayer Collection. The rest we have cited from any source where we 
have found them mentioned. In addition to the arduous research in the 
various archives and libraries, the examination of the various authorities 
citing MSS. has entailed severe and protracted labor. In this research we 
have examined the following works: Sommervogel's Bibliotheque; Blumen- 
tritt's Focabular; Huerta's Estado; Marcellino da Civezza's Saggio di 
bibliografia; Retana's works (especially his Bibliografia de Mindanao, and 
his Archive); Vindel's Catdlogos; Perez's Catalogo; Perez and Giiemes's 
Adiciones; and others. When MSS. have been cited by several authori- 
ties, we have so stated; as we have also done when MSS. personally exam- 
ined by us have been cited by others or transcribed for others. The con- 
stant effort has been to cite as many MSS. as possible, and to describe them 
as fully as possible. In some cases we have been able to give only the most 
meager details. This is true of some of the MSS. cited from the various 
archives, and which we personally examined. In such cases this arises from 
the fact that our notes were taken rather for immediate use in our series 
than for bibliographical purposes. All such MSS., however, have a value 
to the historical student, having been carefully selected from the thousands 
in the archives as worthy of publication. 

Our manuscript division falls quite naturally into two parts: I. Those 
MSS. which we have published, in whole or in part, in our series. II. 
Those manuscripts which we merely cite and describe in this bibliography, 
but have not published in our series. The description of the MSS. of the 
first division is in general more complete than those of the second, except 
for the MSS. from the Library of Congress and the Ayer Collection. In 
all the MSS. of the first division and in as many as possible of the second, 
we have given the opening and closing words; and in some of the most 
important we have indicated the line endings of the titles. 

We have not considered it advisable to list merely devotional writings, 
sermons, translations of the Christian Doctrine, Catechism, etc., of which 
there are so many, both in Spanish and in the Filipino idioms and dialects. 
Neither have we cited all linguistic MSS., of which also there are many. 
We have endeavored, however, to cite specially those documents of politi- 
cal, civil, social and economic value, our constant desire being to furnish

sources for the study of the history of the PhiHppines and the Filipino peoples 
and other inhabitants of the Archipelago in all lines that tend toward human 
development - in a word, of the great forces that make for intellectual and 
spiritual achievement and progress, either through governmental, or social 
and economic (including ecclesiastical) activities. MSS. are cited for 
almost each year of the Spanish regime; and thus the manuscript division 
forms in itself an epitome of Philippine history. 

Of some of the MSS. we are unable to give locations, as some have dis- 
appeared or our authorities have failed to give the place of conservation. 
But wherever possible we have given location and pressmark. We make no 
pretense at completeness. That is impossible in one single volume. But 
we do present a representative list of titles to MSS. gathered from many 
sources, and of distinct value. 

The most important archives and libraries where Philippine material 
(both printed and manuscript) is conserved are noted below, with some 
comments on contents and scope. 

PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

Manila Archives.- During the Spanish regime great confusion prevailed 
in the keeping of MSS. They were not even all housed in central archives. 
It is known that Governor Enrile took back to Spain with him many MSS. 
and printed documents (Pardo de Tavera, Nottcias sohre la imprenta y el 
grabado, p. 8); and it is to be surmised that many documents now in private 
hands in the islands should by rights be in the archives. Each of the reli- 
gious orders had, as now, its own archives, where many valuable documents 
were conserved. The parish priests, as customary in all parts, kept the 
records of their churches, and each municipality generally made some pre- 
tense at keeping records. Yet in all instances, the system was not by any 
means perfected. During the Tagalog rebellion of 1896-97, during the 
Spanish-American war, and during the later Filipino revolution, many 
documents and books were destroyed or looted by Spaniards, Filipinos, 
and Americans. Fortunately, some of the looted MSS. are gradually find- 
ing their way into American libraries and collections, where they will be 
adequately conserved. Since American occupation it has been the policy 
to gather all public records into one central point, namely, at Manila. A 
new bureau was accordingly created, which was known as the Bureau of 
Archives, Patents, Copyrights, and Brands. This bureau lost its entity in 
1906, and is now a part of the Executive Bureau. The division of archives, 
etc., is under the management of Manuel de Iriarte, a Filipino of scholarly 
tastes, considerable executive ability, and thoroughness. Shortly after the 
creation of the bureau, one of the younger Filipino scholars, Clemente

Zulueta, a history professor in the new Filipino academy, was commissioned 
to go to Spain and other countries in order to gather information regarding 
Philippine MSS. This work came to a close on account of the death of Sr. 
Zulueta, and has not been resumed since. Notwithstanding that the ar- 
chives have been removed four times since American occupation, work has 
steadily progressed, and much order brought out of the chaos that formerly 
ruled. Much valuable information has been furnished to the government 
and to private parties, from the archives, especially on land matters and 
accounts. There are over 5,000 volumes of Philippine MSS. in the Manila 
archives, and many loose MSS., relating to the various departments of gov- 
ernment. The collection of records as reorganized since American occupa- 
tion consists of papers covering a period of over two centuries. "It em- 
braces papers referring to all subjects connected with the Spanish adminis- 
tration and all institutions affected by Spanish legislation. It embraces 
papers relating to the general administration of the archipelago, the munici- 
palities, civil and religious corporations, colleges, hospitals, pious founda- 
tions, banks and mercantile corporations, consulates, printing offices, 
colonies, penal institutions, Chinese immigration, patents and trademarks, 
personal records of officials, public charity and health, public instruction, 
post and telegraph, market-license contracts, cock pits, weights and meas- 
ures, ferries, opium, construction and repair of State, provincial, and munici- 
pal buildings; bridges, wagon-roads, railroads, and tramways; industrial, 
urbana, cedula, and Chinese head taxes; customs duties, revenue from 
stamped paper, revenue from vino and tobacco when these articles were 
monopolies of the State; sale of State lands, security fund, and various other 
matters." Among the documents are many important land records and 
many referring to the accounts and public funds.^ 

In regard to the papers of the religious orders, many have been removed 
from the islands by the friars, but many that are most valuable yet remain 
in their archives; and it is hoped that in the near future a thorough investi- 
gation may be made of the documents in the various convents. Through 
the aid of Sr. Iriarte, we have been able to publish one important MS. from 
the Dominican archives. 

Dr. T. H. Pardo de Tavera, of Manila, whom we have cited so frequently 
in this work, possesses a fine collection of Philippina, among which are 
many linguistic titles. Epifanio de los Santos, of Malolos, Bulakan, Luzon, 
also possesses a fine collection, said to number about 2,000 pieces, and which

Philippine Commission for matter regarding the archives. Sr. Iriarte is, in the midst of his 
other duties, preparing an index of the more important MSS. in the archives, which will 
render research much more easy.

Retana ranks above that of Pardo de Tavera. Some of the collection of 
C. Zulueta has been sold; as has also a portion of the Rizal collection. 
Manuel Ponce also owns some Philippina. 

SPAIN 

Archivo de Indias -These archives are housed in the Lonja or Exchange 
at Sevilla. As their name indicates, they are the depot for the conservation 
of papers relating to the Spanish Indies, both West and East. The West 
Indies include all the Spanish possessions in the Americas; the East Indies, 
the Philippines, Moluccas, other islands, and parts of the Asiatic mainland. 
These archives (which are under charge of Pedro Torres Lanzas) are the 
most important in existence for Philippine study, both from the number 
and variety of the papers conserved therein. There are many thousands of 
documents dating from the period of Magalhaes's voyage to almost the end 
of the Spanish regime, and all are open to the student. These documents 
consist not only of MSS. but as well of printed pamphlets and broadsides, 
many of the greatest rarity. There are many duplicates and even some 
triplicates, etc., for in the old days in order to ensure arrival at their destina- 
tion, letters, reports, etc., were generally sent in duplicate, triplicate, and 
even quadruplicate, on different vessels, the report of one year often includ- 
ing that of the previous year, which had been sent before. 

Classification of documents is inadequate. The first general classifica- 
tion is into Audiencias, i.e., into the districts under the jurisdiction of the 
various tribunals of that name. Thus, there is the Audiencia de Quito, the 
Audiencia de Panama, the Audiencia de Mejico, and the Audiencia de Fili- 
pinas. The indexes roughly classify into secular and ecclesiastical, but 
the division is often not sharp, and many documents are strangely out of 
place. There is little individual listing of documents, and still less attempt 
at calendaring. Yet, since the documents are classified by subjects and 
periods, this arrangement furnishes a rough working guide. In research, 
however, one must examine every document of the period under investiga- 
tion, in order that no important material may escape. In the Philippine 
documents proper, there are four main divisions: those sent from Simancas; 
those entitled " Secretaria de Nueva Espaiia;*' those entitled merely ** Audien- 
cia de Filipinas;" and the documents sent by the Ministry of War in 1887. 

The subdivision of each group is into the special heads under which the 
documents naturally classify. Thus, to take a concrete example: the first 
special head of the documents of the Audiencia de Filipinas is "Consultas 
originates correspondientes a dicha Audiencia'* (i.e., "Original consulta- 
tions relating to said Audiencia"). The period embraced for this division 
is for the years 1586-1700; and the pressmark proper is *'estante 67, cajon

6, legajos 1-3." "Estante" corresponds to "section," "cajon," to "shelf/' 
and "legajo" to "bundle" (there being in this case three legajos). The 
various bundles are wrapped in strong paper and tied -a method that is 
somewhat hard on the MSS.; for since many of them are written and 
printed on the so-called rice paper, which has become brittle with age, each 
handling of the bundle aids the natural process of disintegration of such 
documents. Hence some of our transcripts are now more valuable than 
the original from which they were made. 

Because of the importance of the Archivo de Indias for Philippine re- 
search, we give below the contents of the various indexes of Philippine 
documents.' I. The documents sent from Simancas early in the nine- 
teenth century are divided first into those of secular and ecclesiastical 
character indiscriminately - 5 legajos; second, into documents of a 
secular character -68 legajos; and third, into documents of an ecclesias- 
tical character -20 legajos. To this division must be added three legajos 
also sent from Simancas that treat of the discovery, description, and popula- 
tion of the Philippines. II. Documents of the "Secretaria de Nueva 
Espana" - divided into three divisions as above, of 25, 171, and 39 legajos, 
respectively. III. Audiencia de Filipinas. This is divided first, into 
documents of a secular character - 670 legajos; second, into documents 
of an ecclesiastical character - 66 legajos. IV. Documents sent by the 
Ministry of War in 1887. Two divisions as above, of 146 and 34 legajos 
respectively. This makes a total of 1,247 legajos treating entirely of the 
Philippines. To this must be added those documents in other divisions 
that treat of the PhiHppines, such as the Audiencia de Mejico (orders and 
decrees sent to the viceroys, etc.); the legajos treating of the Moluccas; 
papers in the division of justice and accounts; the division "Indiferente de 
Nueva Espana;" and others. The indexes of Philippine documents follow.

OTHER MANUSCRIPT INDEXES MENTIONING PHILIPPINE MATTER 

I. Inventario de autos de la . . de Camara del Consejo de Indias. One division 
(fol. 397-415) contains titles of '■'"Pleitos de Manila," in which there are six legajos, the docu- 
ments of which date from 1580-1756. Fol. 417-435 describe "Residencias de Manila," of 
which there are 31 legajos, the documents of which date from 1 621 -1755. Fol. 437-449 are 
*""Comisiones de Manila," with 10 legajos, the documents of which date from 1618-1741. 

n. Inventario de los papeles de la Contaduria General de Consejo de Indias. The full 
title of this inventory is "Inventario Analytico de todos los papeles, que vinieron de la Con- 
taduria General del Consejo de Indias a este Archivo general y existen en el coordinado en 
1956 legajos, y colocados en once estantes desde el n^. i hasta el xi, inclusivo. Se principio

nado por S. M. para el arreglo de este mismo Archivo general." There are 61 cajones in this 
lot of documents. Pp. 422-444 describe the documents treating of the Philippines under the 
head "Papeles pertenecientes a las Islas Filipinas." These are all included in the dates 
1 565-1 775, and are located in all the legajos between est. 8, caj. i, leg. i | 8 and est. 8, caj. 
4, leg. 97 I 14. These documents consist in great part of accounts for the various years made

IV. Nomenclator Alfabetico del Yndice de Juarez. Yndice de materias y personas 
contenidas en el tomo i° de papeles pertenecientes a Real Patronato. Este Yndice va dividido

En 1 legajo. This index was completed April 12, 18 19. In it many documents on the 
Philippines written by governors and officials are mentioned. Made from the preceding 
Index. 

V. Inventario analitico de los papeles que vinieron de la contratacion de Sevilla a este 
archive general de las Indias. This was made under the direction of Juan Agustin Cean 
Bermudez, and is divided into four vols., showing in all a collection of 5,876 legajos of papers 
from the Seville House of Trade. Many papers treat of the Philippines. The two follow- 
ing indexes were made from this. 

VI. Indice Alfabetico de Tod as las personas cotenidas en el primero tomo del Inventario 
de los papeles de la Contratacion de Sevilla. This is excellent for biographical and biblio- 
graphical purposes, but one needs considerable patience in investigating it. 

VII. Indices Alfabetic^. de las Materias y Pueblos de Indias contenidos en los cuatro 
tomos de los inventarios de la Contratacion de Sevilla. The second part of this index con- 
tains considerable on the Philippines - accounts, registers, and commercial matters. 

Bihlioteca Nacional- This is located at Madrid, and is under charge of 
the eminent Spanish scholar, Marcelino Menendez y Pelayo. This library 
is not especially rich in either Philippine MSS. or books, although it posses- 
ses a few of the rarer books. The MSS. are carefully indexed by title and 
pressmark. See Gallardo's Ensayo for a list of MSS. and books, among 
which are noted some of the MSS. of this library. The books in the library 
are indexed and classified by authors by a system somewhat analogous to 
the modern card system, although much more clumsy. We have listed at 
least the most important of the Philippine MSS. of the library. 

Archivo-Historico Nacional,- These archives are located in the same 
building as the above library, and are under the directorship of Vicente 
Vignau y Balester. The most important collection containing Philippine 
material is the Cedulario indico. This consists of forty-one volumes of 
royal decrees sent to the Indies by the various Spanish monarchs. It is 
evidently a copy made for the record of the government. Many of the de- 
crees concern the Philippines, of which the last four volumes contain the 
greater number, although some few are scattered through most of the re- 
maining volumes. No special order has been kept in the copying of the 
decrees of the Cedulario, and investigation is a matter requiring patient 
plodding. Accompanying the Cedulario is a twenty-four volume calendar, 
which is of some aid. The calendaring is poorly done, being in some in- 
stances longer than the decree itself. Many of the decrees exist in dupli- 
cate in Sevilla, and doubtless in Manila as well. The archives also possess

30 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

a number of long expedientes concerning the expulsion of the Jesuits from 
the Philippines. 

Real Academia de la Historia- This academy, which has had an appre- 
ciable effect on Spanish culture, is also located in Madrid. It is rich in 
Philippine titles, both printed and manuscript. Among the former are 
many of the rarest imprints. Chief among its papers are the Papeles de los 
Jesuitas, or Jesuit papers. These were confiscated from the Jesuit con- 
vents at the time of the expulsion, and number in all about 225 volumes of 
bound MSB., pamphlets, and broadsides. Many of these papers relate to 
the Philippines. These consist of letters from various missionaries, reports 
on the missions, polemical writings, etc. Some of the reports on the 
islands and mission work are among the most important and interesting 
records of the islands. As a rule they were made by comparatively well- 
trained men who were interested in many matters outside of their own nar- 
row sphere of mission work. We include in our series some of these reports. 
The Ventura del Arco transcripts to be described in this bibliography 
were almost entirely, if not wholly, made from these documents. The 
Salazar Collection of MSS., also conserved in this library, contains a few 
documents treating of the Philippines. The famous collection of trans- 
cripts made by Juan Bautista Muiioz is also owned by the Academy. These 
MSS. were transcribed by and for Munoz from various archives in Spain 
(government and private) and Portugal, in pursuance of the royal order 
given him by Carlos III to write a history of Spanish discovery and con- 
quest. Special orders were issued to the Spanish public archives, then 
jealously guarded, to give Munoz every facility of research. It is to be 
regretted that the Spanish government saw fit to prohibit the publication of 
any of the work after the first volume.^ The title to the index of this col- 
lection reads as follows: "Index to the collection of MSS. belonging to the 
history of the Indias written by Don Juan Bautista Muiioz and found at his 
death in his library. Made by royal order, with the intervention of Don 
Jose Navarro, member of his Majesty's Council, alcalde of his royal house, 
and Cortes, and Don Cenon Alonso, chief official of the portfolio of Grace 
and Justice of Indias, by Don Joaquin Traggia and Don Manuel Abella, 
members of the Real Academia de la Historia." This index lists the fol- 
lowing important MSS.: Historia de las islas e indios de B is ay as ^ by Al- 
cina, 2 vols, (which a later note says is not now in the collection); portions 
of books i, ii, and iii of Chirino's Historian a portion of Riquel's Relacion, 
transcribed from the printed copy; Solorzano's relation of the Marianas 
missions for 1682-1683; a portion of the Historia de las Islas Molucas, trans- 

^ Sabin declares that the publication was stopped because the results were not altogether 
complimentary to the Spanish nation.

the library of the Conde de Tepa); a portion of Gonzalez de Mendoza's 
Historiay with the Itinerario (from the copy of the Conde del Aguila); and 
many indexes to libraries. It appears that at least a part of Muiioz's Col- 
lection was made in duplicate or else a transcript was made of part of it, 
for at the Lenox branch of the N. Y. Public Library exists what is known 
by the name of the Munoz Collection, together with a copy of Traggia's 
index (see post, pp. 41, 42). The chief value of Muiioz's work lies in the fact 
that he located many important MSS., among them the copy of Alexander 
VFs bull Inter catera, of May 3, 1493, and some of the important MSS. 
conserved in the Portuguese archives. 

Museo-Bihlioteca de Ultramar,- This museum and library was founded 
in Madrid, in 1887 at the close of the Philippine exposition of that year; 
and its institution was due primarily to the efforts of Victor Balaguer, then 
minister of the colonies (see his Islas Filipinas, Madrid, 1895). The 
museum contains the exhibits of the exposition which were left as a perma- 
nent deposit. They form an excellent display of Philippine products and 
curios, which give a good idea of the progress of the arts and sciences in the 
islands, the methods employed in industry, etc. The collections of Philip- 
pine woods and shells are especially fine. There are a few paintings by 
Filipino artists, which do not show any preeminent merit, one of which is 
a copy of a Murillo. Concerning the library, we translate as follows from 
Balaguer, ut supra: "The library of the Museo de Ultramar consists of 
series and collections of books that treat exclusively of the colonies, many 
of them printed in those lands, and all relating to matters, events, and his- 
tories of countries conquered across seas by our glorious ancestors. This 
library was formed on the base of that possessed by the ministry of the 
colonies, together with the works which have been gathered, book by book, 
by dint of the persevering zeal and benedictine toil of the board at its head; 
the collection of the precious and chosen volumes and documents (a true 
treasure of bibliographical jewels) owned by Don Pascual Gayangos; and 
the acquisition of the many and very rare books formerly owned by Don 
Justo Zaragoza; two fine colonial libraries obtained by the Council of 
Filipinas and generously yielded by that corporation in order to swell the 
library of the above institute, which on that account has been able to com-

plete its own until it is the first and only one of its kind in Spain." The 
collection consists of books and MSS. on all the Spanish colonies. There is 
a fine collection of Philippine titles, among which are some of the rarest. 
The MSS. are few in number, but are choice. Among the Philippine MSS. 
are Riquel's Relacion, the Relacion of Artieda, a Relacion by Legazpi, and 
the Valdes Tamon MS., all of which we publish (the last only in extract). 
The librarian in charge of this institution is Francisco de P. Cousiiio y Vaz- 
quez. See the Catdlogo of the library, which we list, post, 

Bihltoteca Real -The royal library is located in the royal palace in 
Madrid, and is under charge of the Conde de las Navas, an author of some 
repute in Spain. Its shelves contain but very few Philippine titles, but what 
it has is valuable. Among its MSS. it lists a copy of Chirino's unpublished 
Historia; a copy of Sanchez's Relacion, presented to Felipe II, about 1590; 
and a copy of Valdes Tamon's Relacion. 

Deposito hidrogrdfico.- The principal office of this department is located 
in Madrid, and there is a branch office at Cadiz. Many of the documents 
are transcripts or duplicates of those now at Sevilla. The collection of 
maps is doubtless much greater than that of the A. de I.; especially for the 
last century of Spanish rule, and many of the late maps are probably printed. 
This bureau was for many years under the charge of Martin Fernandez de 
Navarrete, who worked enthusiastically to increase the usefulness of the de- 
partment, and caused many transcripts to be made. The documents col- 
lected by him are now known as the Navarrete Collection. Permission to 
carry on investigations in this bureau must be obtained through the gov- 
ernment, either directly or by means of the intervention of the minister of 
the country of the applicant. 

Archivo de Simancas- As indicated by their name, these archives are 
located in the village of Simancas. They are housed in an old castle on the 
borders of the old kingdom of Leon, which was set apart by Carlos I and 
Felipe II for the conservation of state papers. They are at present under 
the directorship of Julian Paz, a man of great energy and an enthusiastic 
worker, who is endeavoring to reduce the chaotic disorder of the archives 
to a well-ordered system. It has been estimated that these archives contain 
some 33,000,000 documents. During the French invasion in the Napo- 
leonic wars, many of the MSS. were scattered, burned, and looted, many 
being carried off to France and deposited in the royal library. Most but 
not all of these latter were restored later in the century. As already 
stated many documents were removed thence in the early part of the nine- 
teenth century to A. de I., and there are still many more that should be 
removed to the same place. Most of the Philippine documents are state 
consultations, etc.; but there are some duplicates of the documents in A. de

I. We have published some few MSS. from these archives. An extended 
research would result in the finding of much valuable matter. 

Archivo de Alcald de Henares- Montero y Vidal cites several MSS., 
some of which he gives in full, from these archives. Although no personal 
examination of these archives has been made, it is quite probable that there 
is nothing of special importance in them. The project has been broached 
of removing all the MSS. to Madrid (as well, indeed the MSS. of all the 
other government archives), in order that they may be conserved in one 
central point, and thus research be facilitated as in the Bibliotheque Na- 
tionale, in Paris. 

Colegio de AgustinoSy Valladolid.- This convent and college was founded 
in the eighteenth century, especially for the training of missionaries for the 
Philippines. On this account it is often called Colegio de Filipinas. In 
the library of this college are found some few rare PhiHppine titles, mainly 
chronicles and histories; and Diaz's MS., Conquistas de las Islas Philipinas, 
dated 1720. More noteworthy is the collection in the same convent belong- 
ing to Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A., one of the foremost Augustinian scholars 
in Spain. Father Navarro's collection of books shows the various divi- 
sions of history, biography, description, linguistics, religion, natural science, 
government and politics, statistics, and bibliography. While this collec- 
tion contains some few of the old chronicles and older linguistic titles, the 
greater part is rather modern. The chief gems among the MSS. are Agus- 
tin Maria de Castro's Osario venerable, and Martinez de Zuiiiga's Estadismo. 
Father Navarro also possesses some few hundreds of transcripts that were 
made in A. de I., many of which we have published from our own tran- 
scripts made from the same originals. Father Navarro has been an earnest 
worker in the Philippine field, and has written several books and pamphlets. 
He has lately been transferred to the Madrid convent of his order. Rev. 
Tirso Lopez of the Valladolid convent edited Diaz's chronicle from the 
original MS. 

Retana, Catdlogo, p. xiii, says that the Augustinian convent and colegio 
de la Vid (Burgos) does not possess as many books as the Valladolid con- 
vent, but that it is rich in chronicles and vocabularies. 

Collections at Dominican convents- At the convent of Ocana, Toledo, 
the Dominicans have some important Philippine books and MSS.; but we 
have not seen this collection. At the Avila convent of the order, are some of 
the rarest chronicles, among them the Historia of Diego Collantes. 

Collection of the Compania General de Tabacos de Filipinas- This is the 
largest and best collection of Philippina in existence. It is located in the 
offices of the Company at Barcelona, and is due to the initiative of the direct- 
or, Clemente Miralles de Imperial, who began to make his collections in

1883, with the intention of amassing into one collection all available books 
on the Philippines, at least those written in the Spanish language. In 1894 
he entered into relations with Retana and Vindel. Since 1896, he has 
bought many books from European booksellers outside of Spain. The 
librarian in charge of the collection is Jose Sanchez Garrigos, from whom 
the information regarding this collection is in part derived. According to 
Retana's latest bibliographical work, Aparato bibliografico, which is the 
catalogue of this collection, it contains 4,623 different titles. In 1900, the 
Company purchased the magnificent collection of Retana, which consisted 
of 2,697 titles, which the latter claims that he sold at a sacrifice. The du- 
plicates obtained with Retana's Collection, the Company has sold. Since 
it has not been the policy of the Company to acquire original MSS., it has 
disposed of most if not all of such that came into its possession. On the 
other hand, the Company possesses transcripts from originals in A. de L, 
amounting to 34,000 pliegos, or 68,000 leaves. The work of gathering 
transcripts was begun in accordance with the suggestion of Retana, in 1895, 
and the work was given in commission to Vicente Llorens Asensio, of the 
staff of A. de I. in 1899. These transcripts the Company has generously 
loaned to Pablo Pastells, to whom they were of immense use in editing his 
edition of Colin's Labor evangelica. Of books, there are in this incompa- 
rable collection, 1,702 titles in linguistics; and of newspapers, 127 of the 
182 (either in whole or in part of the entire issue) pubHshed in the islands, 
besides all the old chronicles. Volumes in this collection have come from 
the following collections: Soweleski, Ramirez, Duque de Alba, Duque de 
Durcal, Fermin Caballero, Marques de Liedena, Duque de T'Serclaes, 
Salva-Heredia, the Emperor Maximilian, Sancho Rayon, Medina, Cabezas 
de Herrera, Barrantes, General Terrero, Tiscar, Zapater, and others 
(many of them having come through the Retana Collection). All the books 
are carefully bound, and among them are seen some celebrated bindings. 
See Aparato bibliografico, i, Retana's introduction; and Pastells's edition 
of Colin's Labor evangelica, i, pp. 236-238. The Company very generously 
allows research among its treasures. Since American occupation, it should 
be said that more attention has been paid to the collection of foreign 
books. 

Pastells's Collection - One of the best known workers in the field of Phil- 
ippina is Pablo Pastells, S. J., of Sarria. Pastells was for many years a 
missionary in the Philippines, and was at one time the teacher of Dr. Rizal. 
He collaborated with Retana in his edition of Combes's Historia de Min- 
danao y J0I6. Some of the letters written by him concerning Mindanao 
contain valuable ethnological material. He has also contributed a few notes 
to our series. His chief work, however, is his edition of Colin's Labor

evangelica, published at Barcelona, in 1904, in three vols. As above stated, 
he had the use of the transcripts gathered by the C. G. de T. de F., many 
of which he has reproduced in his footnotes. In his own collection Father 
Pastells possesses a few of the old chronicles, and of important MSS. that of 
Murillo Velarde's Htstorta, In addition he had the use of the MS. of Chi- 
rino's unpublished Htstorta, which was either lent or given to him by Ramon 
Martinez Vigil, O. P., now bishop of Oviedo in Spain, but formerly stationed 
in the Philippines. 

Other Spanish Collections,- According to Retana (Aparato bibl., i, p. xxxv), 
there were few collectors in Philippina until 1898. Agustin Maria de 
Castro had an excellent collection as early as 1780, especially of the 
writings of Augustinians. Francisco Zapater, who was in the Philippines 
in the middle of the nineteenth century, possessed many books. After 
his death in Zaragoza, whither he had removed his residence, many of his 
books were bought by Retana. Jose de Keyset y Munoz possessed some ex- 
cellent MSS., of which Retana acquired two. Vicente Barrantes's collec- 
tion obtained more prestige than it deserved. It consisted of about 600 
titles, most of which were ordinary and all of which were not in the best 
condition.*^ At his death the collection was sold to Vindel. Some of the 
MSS. and the corridos were bought for the Ayer Collection, and others of 
the collection were sold to the C. G. de T. de F. The collection of Juan 
Alvarez Guerra, numbering less even than that of Barrantes, was sold piece 
by piece while its owner was still living. Some were purchased by the C. G. 
de T. de F., and others were bought by Vindel, whence some have come to 
the United States. A small collection was also possessed by Jose Velarde 
y Naveda, an ofl&cia 1 of the colonial government. Antonio Graiiio, of the 
firm of Victoriano Suarez, in Madrid, has been collecting Philippina. 
He has some of the rarest of titles, among which is the only copy known 
of Arte y reglas de la lengua tagala, by San Jose (Bataan, 1610). He also 
possesses two copies of Collantes's Historia, and some valuable MSS., 
among them a copy of Viana's Demostracion deplorable. His object is ulti- 
mately to sell these books, but he is waiting until the prices go up, and mean- 
while is endeavoring to obtain all the copies possible of all the rare books 
in order that he may control the price. The collections of the Marques de 
Jerez de los Caballeros, and of the Duque de T'Serclaes, both of 
Sevilla, contained some good Philippine titles. The universities of Sevilla 
and Barcelona, and the provincial library at Toledo possess a few of the 
older historical titles. 

'According to Retana; some of the MSS. of this collection, however, now owned by 
the Ayer Collection, have a decided value. One often suspects Retana 's judgment to be 
warped by personal feeling, which leads him to assign less merit than is due.

3 6 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

Archives and libraries in Portugal 
The most important archives in Portugal are the national archives called 
Torre do Tombo, v^hich are located in Lisbon. These contain some Philip- 
pine MSS., and many MSS. relating to the Portuguese settlements in the 
Orient. Some of the Mufioz transcripts w^ere made from documents in these 
archives. The public library of Lisbon or the Biblioteca Nacional, also 
located in Lisbon, contains a few Philippine titles among its printed books, 
as well as a few MSS. The Portuguese archives are a prolific source of 
information for the Moluccas Islands and the Asiatic mainland. 

Archives and libraries in Italy 

Archivio del Vaticano- This is the most important of the archives in 
Italy, and investigation is open to all. They contain many important col- 
lections that have come from many sources. There is less Philippine ma- 
terial, however, than one might reasonably expect. The greater part of 
the Philippine MSS. consists of the copies of papal bulls and briefs; although 
there are some reports, such as the important relation of Alonso Sanchez, 
S. J., made about 1590. There is also some little matter in regard to the 
episcopal visit of regulars, which was waged so fiercely in the islands and in 
Spain. The indexes of the archives are poor and research is consequently 
arduous. 

Biblioteca del Faticano -The library of the Vatican is quite separate 
from the archives. Like the latter it is extremely rich in the many impor- 
tant collections conserved therein. Considerable confusion is manifest, 
and all the collections are not yet adequately catalogued. There are some 
rare Philippine titles, but Philippina is not extensive. Retana, Im- 
prenta, col. 50, citing from Agustin Maria de Castro's Osario, says that 
copies of all the printed volumes mentioned in that MS. were sent to Rome 
in 1766. We did not see those books, although they may be in the library. 
Judging from a survey of the material in both the library and the archives 
of the Vatican, one is forced to the conclusion that direct communication 
between Rome and the islands was not very frequent. An examination 
of the archives of the generals of the various orders might reveal more clearly 
the channel through which the communications flowed. 

Other collections in Rome.-Thtve must be some material in Propaganda 
Fide, but it is difficult to gain access to the shelves of that institution. In 
the Biblioteca de Vittorio Emanuele, which contains many MSS. from sup- 
pressed convents, especially on the Jesuit missions in China, there appears 
to be no Philippine material. The nearest approach to it is a manuscript 
map, by Joseph Somera, of the Palaos in 1710 (see our vol. xli, p. 53, where 
we reproduce this in photographic facsimile).

Bihlioteca Amhrosiana- This is one of the most famous libraries in the 

world. It was founded in Milan in 1609 by Cardinal Federigo Borromeo, 

who sent scholars into all the European countries to buy rare and valuable 

books and MSS. Of books the library contains about 175,000, and of MSS. 

over 8,000. It contains very few Philippine books, and those of no special 

rarity. It is chiefly interesting to the student of Philippina because of 

the Italian relation of Magalhaes's voyage by Antonio Pigafetta. In regard 

to this MS. and the Ambrosian Library see post^ p. 144, and Robertson's 

Magellan s voyage around the worlds ii, "Bibliography." There is also a 

copy of Alonso Sanchez's report, as well as several minor documents, in 

this collection. The Breda Library of Milan contains a few rare Pigafetta 

titles. _ 

trance 

Bibltotheque Nationale,- The Bibliotheque Nationale is the only library 
in France to be considered by the student of Philippina. In the printed 
books department are found many of the rare Philippine titles. These will 
be found listed in the catalogue of printed books now under process of com- 
pilation. In the manuscripts department, the two chief treasures are the 
two French Pigafetta MSS. (see post, p. 240, and Robertson's Magellan's 
voyage around the world y ii, " BibHography"). Some of the PhiHppine MSS. 
are probably among those looted by the French armies from the Simancas 
archives, which were not restored to Spain with the MSS. sent back to that 
country. Worthy of mention is also the relation by the so-called Genoese 
pilot of Magalhaes's voyage. Cataloguing is carefully done and research 
is much more easy than in the Spanish and Italian archives. 

England 

British Museum,- Ks on most subjects, the British Museum contains 
good collections of Philippine printed material and MSS. Among the first 
are many of the rare chronicles and histories (of some of them there are two 
or more copies), and many of the rarest pamphlets. The MSS. are mainly 
in the Spanish language, but there are a few in English. Among the best of 
the latter are Dampier's account, and Dalrymple's Plan for an attack on 
the southern islands. The Spanish MSS. are catalogued in part in Pascual 
Gayangos's Catalogue of the Spanish MSS. in the British Museum. They 
were acquired in large part in various sales, one of which was the sale of the 
Carley Castle Collection. There are also a number of manuscript maps, 
which have some interest. 

Mention must also be made of the Phillipps Collection which is con- 
served at Cheltenham, England. This contains the Nancy MS. of Pigafet- 
ta's relation (see post, pp. 239, 240; and Robertson's Magellan's voyage 
around the world).

38 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

Other European collections 

A letter from the director of the Netherlands archives at The Hague 
reports that there is no distinctive section of the archives devoted to Philip- 
pine MSS. Most of the papers are written in the Dutch language, and 
many treat of the Dutch expeditions to the Orient and the Dutch Oriental 
possessions. It is quite probable that many MSS. of the East Indies con- 
tain references to the Philippines. 

Retana (Imprenta), and Pardo de Tavera {Bibl fil.^ p. 9), say that the 
University of Leyden contains a good collection of Philippine books and 
documents, as does also the national library of Berlin. 

Retana also notes that Blumentritt's collection is rather large, and has 
a practical value. It contains many of the works printed outside of Spain, 
especially the recent scientific titles. 

Retana (Imprenta, cols, 50, 51), records that a Russian imperial order of 
November 13, 1787, requested the captain-general of the Philippines to send 
Filipino grammars and vocabularies to Russia, and that the request was 
granted. 

Mexico 

Bihlioteca NacionaL-We have made no personal examination of this 
library, but from the close connection of Mexico and the Philippines until 
the Mexican revolt, one would naturally expect to find many Philippine 
documents in Mexico. Our first inquiries, however, resulted only in the 
report that there were no Philippine MSS. whatever in the Biblioteca 
Nacional. But just as our volume is going to press. Dr. H. E. Bolton, of 
Texas State University (now making investigations in Mexico for the Car- 
negie Institution), reports that the Philippine matter in this library is con- 
tained in three volumes. One of these (consisting of 755 pages) is entitled 
"Ano de 1669. Gen.^ Franc.° Garcia del Fresno. Traslado de los Autos 
que precedieron p.^ encomendarle los nat.^ Del pu.° de Vigan y sus sugetos 
en la Prov.* de Ylocos, que gozava. En segunda Vida D.* Ana de Sarate 
por mrd. de su Magestad." The two other volumes contain copies called 
"Fragmentos de la Historia de Filipinas del P. F. Juan de la Concepcion, 
y Copia de la de China del P.® Jesuita Guzman," We are also indebted for 
the following information regarding Philippine material in other Mexican 
archives to Dr. Bolton. 

Archivo General y Publico.- The basis of these archives was that of the 
superior government of the Mexican viceroys, to which belonged almost 
all the documents treating of the Philippines. There is considerable ma- 
terial in the section entitled "Reales Cedulas." This section consists of 
210 bound volumes of original cedulas and orders addressed to the viceroys 
by the Spanish monarchs for the years 1609-1821. Cedulas relating to the

BIBLIOGRAPHY-INTRODUCTION 3 9 

Philippines, and treating of many different matters, are found in almost 
every volume. Many treat of the Acapulco galleon, the general commerce 
of the Philippines, and funds raised in Mexico for the islands. The section 
entitled " Correspondencia de los Virreyes," and consisting of 244 volumes, 
contains for the period 1755-1821, a chronological file of the reports of the 
viceroys to the Spanish office. Many of these relate to the Philippines. 
The subjects dealt with in the ten communications touching the Philippines 
in the first volume are typical. These are as follows: the despatch of the 
Acapulco galleon; procedure in case of prizes; appointment of the arch- 
bishop of Manila; permit to go to China; regulations for the sale of goods 
brought in the galleon at the fair in Acapulco; mode of remitting royal 
despatches from Mexico to the islands; and remittance of money for the 
building of the Manila hospital. The section entitled "Filipinas" com- 
prises about sixty volumes. The greater part of the documents of this 
section consist of correspondence of the viceroy with the following: the 
governor of the Philippines; the castellan of Acapulco; the port officials 
of San Bias; mission authorities, both of Mexico and the Philippines; the 
tribunal of the Real Consulado of Manila; and various officials of the royal 
exchequer of Mexico. In addition, there are reports of the proceedings 
of the Audiencias of Manila and Mexico, and expedientes relating to va- 
rious miscellaneous matters. The various documents are roughly classified 
chronologically. The matters most frequently met in the correspondence 
are: current events in the Philippines; trade regulations; the Acapulco 
galleon; remittance of situados; mission funds and supplies; transporta- 
tion of missionaries; recruiting of soldiers; and financial and military 
reports. None of these classes of papers seems to be complete for the period 
covered. The correspondence of the governors occasionally contain val- 
uable relations of the events of the islands: e.g., an extended report (1755), 
of the eruption of the volcano of Taal (with a map); the report of 1755 con- 
cerning the expulsion of the infidel Chinese from the Parian, and the Moro 
raids; and the reports of 1757 concerning the Moro raids, the reception at 
Manila of the embassy from the Moro sultan, Ali-Mudin, and the fire in 
the Parian. Other sections of these archives containing Philippine mate- 
rial are: "Impresos Oficiales;" "Marina;" **Misiones;" "CaHfornias;" 
and "Historia." In a general way, all the subjects mentioned above are 
scattered through all these sections, but yet there is some differentiation. 
The section of Marina particularly contains much material concerning the 
movements of vessels, whether of trade or war, between Mexico and the 
islands (this material being found for the most part in the volumes devoted 
to Acapulco and San Bias). The small amount of material in the section 
**Historia" is mainly of the class just described. In "Impresos Oficiales"

are found numerous printed edicts, circulars, ordinances, and regulations, 
concerning Philippine trade in the eighteenth century. Vol. iv contains 
the Ordinanzas de la Compania de Comercio formada en la Ciudad de 
Manila, 1755- Vols, i, iv, viii, and ix of the section "Misiones" contain 
Philippine material. In vol. viii are documents relating to the ohra pia 
of the college of San Andres (1789); and matter regarding the supplies of 
the Recollect province of San Nicolas. Vols, iv and ix contain accounts 
by missionaries (1665-1796). Vol. xxii of the section "Californias" con- 
tains correspondence with the governor concerning the danger of an Eng- 
lish expedition to the Philippines (1802). Vol. xxvi of the same section 
consists almost entirely of royal cedulas relative to Dominican and Augus- 
tinian missions in the Californias and Philippines (1634-1751). In vol. 
xlvii are numerous documents relative to Mourelle's voyage "by the new 
route of the equinoctial" (1780-1781). These include the diaries of Mou- 
relle and other officers of the expedition. 

Museo Nacional- The most valuable papers concern the missions. 
The best of these are found in the Franciscan convent papers, which com- 
prise about seventy-five large legajos and over two hundred bound volumes 
(the latter of little importance) treating of miscellaneous matters. About 
one-third of the legajos contain valuable reports and letters from the Fran- 
ciscans in the Philippines, which are mainly addressed to the commissaries- 
general of Nueva Espaiia. Some of these letters are dated as early as 1632. 
but most of them are of the eighteenth century. Some of the reports treat 
of the religious affairs of the entire Orient as well as of the Philippines, 
Considerable matter relating to the ecclesiastical history of the islands 
is to be found in a series of five volumes entitled Manuscritos varios and 
belonging to the Lancaster-Jones Collection. These papers, many of 
which evidently came from the archives of the archbishopric of Mexico, 
date from 1567 to 18 19. The Museo Nacional also contains a copy of 
Rojo's Operaciones del arzobispo de Manila (Sept. 7, 1763; see post, pp. 23 1, 
232). In legajo i of a series of seven legajos is found the journal of the 
same archbishop (Dec. 23, 1762; see post, p. 128). Accompanying this 
is a brief notice of the death and funeral of Rojo. 

We also list five MSS. belonging to one Angel Barber in the City of 
Mexico, whose titles we obtained through the courtesy of Camillus Crivelli, 
S. J., of Mexico. 

United States 

Within the United States are several notable collections of Philippina. 
Both Harvard and Boston Public libraries are rich in the old Philippine 
chronicles and histories. Neither library ever made any special attempt 
at such collections, and the books found their way to the library shelves in

various manners. At least one of the books in the Boston Public Library 
was part of the Bowditch Collection, and others are in the Ticknor Collec- 
tion. There are no MSS. in Harvard, and Boston Public numbers less 
than half a dozen. The State Library of Boston can boast only of a royal 
decree of Madrid, September 30, 1639, in answer to a petition of Grau y 
Monfalcon; and another decree of Madrid, July 10, 1786, regarding com- 
merce-both printed. They were acquired in a recent shipment from 
Mexico. The Massachusetts Historical Library, also in Boston, owns a 
copy of Murillo Velarde's Historia. 

The John Carter Brown Library, of Providence, now in possession of 
Brown University, contains some of the rarest of Philippine books, but no 
MSS. It contains some of the rarest Pigafetta and Magalhaes material 
(see Robertson's Magellan* s voyage around the world), the rare Morga, 
various editions of Leonardo de Argensola, several editions of Gonzalez 
de Mendoza's Historia, etc. 

Lenox.- The Lenox branch of the New York Public Library contains 
a goodly list of the rarest and most valuable Philippine chronicles and his- 
tories (see Bulletin, iv, no. i, 1900). There are also some good Philippine 
MSS. These latter belong to the Rich Collection, which was purchased 
from Mr. Obadiah Rich, the well-known book collector, about the year 1848. 
The MSS. of this collection (see Bulletin, v, July, 1901) relate mainly to 
Spanish America. Its source is given as follows: "The greater part of this 
collection was formed by Don Antonio de Uguina, of Madrid. It com- 
prises almost everything of interest that was collected for his friend Muiioz 
for the Historia del Nuevo Mundo, of which only the first volume was pub- 
lished. Uguina was also the friend of Navarrete, and furnished him with 
many of the materials for his Coleccion de Viages, After the death of 
Uguina, his MSS. were purchased by M. Ternaux Compans, of Paris, who 
had already collected many MSS. on Spanish America. The whole col- 
lection afterwards came into the possession of O. Rich, who added these 
to some MSS. from the collection of Lord Kingsborough, and a few pro- 
cured by himself in Spain." In all the collection forms 142 folio and 
quarto volumes, bound in morocco. No. 6 of this collection consists of a 
series of papers on the possession of the Moluccas. In regard to the docu- 
ments that purport to come from the Munoz Collection, see ante, p. 30. 
The presence of these documents raises the interesting question as to which 
are the real Munoz documents. There are copies of the Loarca Relacion 
both in Lenox and in R. A. de la H. On the other hand, the first vol. of 
Alcina's Relacion, which the Traggia index at R. A. de la H. says is miss- 
ing from the collection, is found in the Lenox library. The question can 
only be satisfactorily solved by a detailed examination of both the MSS. of

R. A. de la H. and Lenox. We lean rather to the theory that Munoz's tran- 
scripts were made in duplicate. 

There are a few rare Philippine titles in Astor branch of the N. Y. Public 
library. See the Bulletin for 1900. Both Lenox and Astor contain much 
matter for bibliographical study. 

The Hispanic Society of New York City, lately inaugurated by Mr. 
Archer M. Huntington, has valuable Philippine books and MSB. However, 
as the collection has not yet been opened to scholars, it is impossible to 
state the extent of Philippine material. Among the books are some valuable 
linguistic works, and some of the earliest chronicles of the islands. 

In Philadelphia, three libraries possess rare PhiHppina. The Library 
Company owns a copy of Murillo Velarde's Historia, and an Extracto his- 
torial. The Widener branch of the Public Library owns a set of Concep- 
cion's Historia. The American Philosophical Society owns a copy of 
Salazar's Historia. 

Library of Congress.- For the extent and scope of the various collections 
in the Library of Congress, see the bibliography issued by the Library, con- 
taining A. P. C. Griffin's List of books and P. Lee Phillips's List of maps. 
The collection of books contains a number of rare titles, although there are 
numerous titles that the library should have which are lacking. The only 
library in the United States that can at all compete with it, so far as general 
Philippina is concerned, is the Ayer Collection in Chicago. It has but 
few MSS. treating directly of the Philippines; but does possess all the 
records that were conserved in the island of Guam. These treat in general 
of the Marianas Islands. Unfortunately, they were conserved in a place 
that was liable to visitation by the sea at times, and consequently the MSS. 
are in a poor state of preservation, even most of the more recent. A letter 
to Herbert Putnam, Librarian of Congress, conserved with the Guam MSS., 
states that the archives of Guam contained in August, 1897-August, 1900, 
documents of at least three classes: I. Trials and residencias. The most 
interesting is that of Lieuten ant-General Don Antonio Pimentel, who gave 
provisions to Woods Rogers in 17 10 just after the latter had captured the 
Spanish galleon "Nuestra Senora de la Encarnacion" off the coast of Lower 
California. With Rogers at that time was Alexander Selkirk, who had but 
recently been rescued from the island of Juan Fernandez. II. Inventory 
of effects belonging to the Jesuits at the time of their expulsion. This 
shows their flourishing condition and bears testimony to their introduction 
of useful arts. III. Letter books of various governors stored in the gov- 
ernment house, Sept. 26, 1831-March 4, 1892, 11 vols. These letters con- 
tain social and economic information, records the earthquakes, etc. There 
is one volume marked "Department of War" (April 25, 1863-September

i6, 1875); ^^^ ^ fi^^ o^ Manila newspapers which are in poor condition. 
The library possesses a number of broadsides, circulars, etc., some of which 
were issued by Aguinaldo. There are also five numbers of the manuscript 
newspaper published by the insurgents during the revolution against the 
American government. The serious student of Philippina must have 
recourse to the treasures of the Library of Congress. 

The library of the War Department in Washington possesses a number 
of Philippine titles. The only rare work is Combes's Historia. 

Ayer Collection,- This is a private collection which is owned by Edward 
E. Ayer, of Chicago. As soon as the American victory in Manila Bay was 
cabled to the United States, Mr. Ayer, who has long been an enthusiastic 
collector of Americana, ordered his agents both at home and abroad to buy 
Philippina. As a consequence, his collection ranks among the best in 
the world in point of value. While it does not include as many ordinary 
book titles as the Library of Congress, it contains about as many of the 
rarer, and has some that the Library of Congress does not possess. Many 
of the books (as well as MSS.) were purchased from the C. G. de T. de F., 
and were formerly owned by W. E. Retana. In regard to MSS., this col- 
lection shows the best material outside of A. de I. The MSS. embrace 
almost the entire period of the Spanish regime, and while not so remarkable 
in point of number of individual pieces, it is remarkable in point of value. 
To mention only a few of the more important MSS., one finds here the 
Viana MSS., which contain so much useful and exact economic and gov- 
ernment material; the Bernaldez MS., and another MS. of the early nine- 
teenth century in which is found much that is extremely valuable; the Anda 
MSS.; the ecclesiastical MSS., which throw light on the troubles between 
the secular and regular branches of the clergy; the Ventura del Arco tran- 
scripts, copied from R. A. de la H.; and finally the two Rizal MSS., 
which throw not a little light on Rizal's life. Some of the MSS. were for- 
merly in the Retana and Barrantes collections. Many were purchased from 
Vindel, and some through Chadenat. All the MSS. are fully listed post. 
Mention should be made here of the bamboo rolls in the collection, on which 
are scratched in Mangyan characters a number of Mangyan songs. These 
are translated into Tagalog by three Mangyans, Bocon, Damdam, and 
Cobla, and an English version has been made by Fletcher Gardner. The 
rolls are accompanied by papers on which are written the songs in the three 
languages. Only the Mangyan is written on the rolls. The songs are 
mainly begging and courting songs. These rolls are valuable ethnological 
contributions. With unexampled generosity, Mr. Ayer, of his own voli- 
tion, threw open his magnificent collection to us in the preparation of our 
series, allowing the free use of his material in any way we deemed best.

44 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

University of California.-- Prof. Bernard Moses replies to our in- 
quiry that the only MSS. "relating to the Philippines" in the library of 
the University, "are copies of such as relate to affairs under American 
administration." Speaking of the documents at Manila, he says: "We 
had a plan to publish some of the most ancient of these papers, and thus 
save them from the inevitable destruction that is before them in that cli- 
mate, but the original commission was broken up before we were able to 
carry out this design." 

Leland Stanford, Jr., University .- This library possesses no rare printed 
Philippina. It does possess some MSS., all of which are modern, and 
some of them since American occupation. The collection embraces judi- 
cial, educational, revolutionary, and other papers. We present in brief in 
this place a note regarding the collection received from Melvin G. Dodge, 
associate librarian of the university, which was made by one of the instruct- 
ors of the university. We have not listed the MSS. among the manuscript 

titles.

BIBLIOGRAPHY- INTRODUCTION 47 

We have yet to touch upon a few special features, either belonging to the 
realm of bibliography or closely connected therewith. 

Linguistics,- Books printed in the various languages and dialects of the 
Philippine Islands, and grammars and lexicons, form a considerable part 
of many collections. The C. G. de T. de F. has more linguistic titles than 
any other collection, numbering 1,702. These include 79 corridas or ro- 
mances, 17 other works resembling corridas. Many of these titles had 
formerly belonged to W. E. Retana. Pardo de Tavera possesses many 
linguistic titles, his collection extending to all the languages of Oceanica. 
The Ayer Collection shows some hundreds of titles (which were mainly 
gathered by Dr. Doherty), among which are many that are rare. The 
library of Peabody Institute of Baltimore, which possesses the scarce third 
volume of Mas, and a Mallat with the atlas, makes a specialty of collecting 
linguistic titles. As yet the collection is small, but it is very choice, and 
numbers some of the rarest titles. It is gratifying to note that several 
American scholars have taken up the systematic study of the languages and 
dialects of the Philippines. The work done by Dr. Frank R. Blake, of 
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, holds chief place. A letter from Dr. 
Blake thus describes the work and its results: "The work in Philippine 
languages begun at the Johns Hopkins University in 1901 is still going on. 
It was designed to give instruction in the principal Philippine languages, 
and publish articles on various important topics of Philippine grammar. 
Beginning with 1901, instruction has been given in Tagalog, Bisayan, and 
Ilokan, as well as in the kindred idiom, Malay. A series of lectures on the 
native tribes of the Philippines was also given twice during the period. A 
scientific Tagalog grammar has been prepared, and manuals of other im- 
portant dialects have been projected. A number of articles on various topics 
of Philippine philology have been published by myself and my students, 
Dr. W. G. Seiple, now professor of Hebrew in the Reformed Church college 
in Japan, and Dr. L. B. Wolfenson of Baltimore. The following is a list 
of these, viz. : 

"By F. R. Blake.— Study of Philippine languages at Johns Hopkins 
University; in American Anthropologist, 1902, iv, p. 793. Sanskrit loan 
words in Tagalog; in J, H, U, Circulars, 1903, no. 163, p. 63. Analogies 
between Semitic and Tagalog; ibid., p. 65. Differences between Tagalog 
and Bisayan; in Journal of American Oriental Society, 1904, xxv, pp. 162-

301. 

**By L. B. Wolfenson- The infixes la, li, lo, in Tagalog; ibid., 1906, 
xxvii, pp. 142-146. 

"Other articles in a more or less advanced stage of completion await 
publication, the most important and extensive being the Tagalog grammar 
above mentioned. No bibliography of Philippine languages has yet been 
published by the university, but I have prepared such a bibliography on 
cards, and expect to publish it as soon as I can find the time." 

Dr. David J. Doherty, of Chicago, who is one of the warmest champions 
of immediate Filipino independence, and who is now in the Philippines, has 
been working for some time in the various Filipino languages. He is at- 
tempting to amalgamate the seven chief languages of the Christian popula- 
tion into one common tongue. To this end he has compiled on cards a 
dictionary of the Tagalog language, to which he has added the words as used 
by the natives in the other languages. When the work is complete, he pro- 
poses to ask the Philippine Academy to decide which words should be given 
the preference in the common language, and the attempt will be made to bring 
the words into general usage through the assistance of the literati and press. 
Dr. Doherty has gathered many phonograph records with specimens of the 
various languages on them, in order that he may have the correct intona- 
tion and accent of the words. A letter received some time ago from him 
states that his dictionary was ready for press, and he expected the Philippine 
government to publish it. The work was done throughout with the aid of 
native Filipinos of education. 

In answer to a letter of inquiry regarding his work, Willard A. Goodell, 
of North Truro, Mass., and formerly a missionary in the Philippines, 
writes us as follows concerning his work: "Although I became somewhat 
proficient in the use of the Tagalog dialect - sufficiently so that I was able 
to preach in it for the last two years that I was in the islands - and although 
I did considerable work translating for our mission, upon our Hymnal, 
Sunday-school lessons, handbooks for native workers, etc., as well as 
supervising the translation of Stalker's Life of Christ, still I cannot really 
cite you to one work, which is mine as a translator. The entire style of the 
Malay dialects is so decidedly different from western tongues and so diffi- 
cult to acquire that one must needs be long among the people before his 
acquired knowledge of the language would be as safe a guide to idiomatic 
accuracy as the instinct of the native. To this instinct, we were accustomed 
regularly to appeal and upon it to rely in our translations. I doubt i{ any 
other mode of translation is safe. I was repeatedly assured by Tagalogs

that no Spanish friars had ever become perfectly idiomatic in their use of 
Tagalog. I have seen certain of their translations which were clearer to 
my Latin-trained mind than to the Tagalog in whose language they pur- 
ported to read. If I had been able to return for a second term of work, the 
translation of several standard religious works (with such native help as I 
should need), had already been assigned me as one of my chief tasks.'* 

Maps and cartography.- Probably the best collection of manuscript maps 
is that of the A. de I. (with the possible exception of the following). For 
a list of these see Torres Lanzas's Relacion descriptiva de los mapaSy pianos y 
etCy de Filipinas (Madrid, 1897). See also posty p. 59, for the title of a 
map missed by the compiler. There is also a large plan of Cavite dated 
1659, ^^^^ ^o ^^ archives by the ministry of war, which is not included in 
the list. The Deposito Hidrografico of Madrid also possesses a collection of 
manuscript maps, some of which are probably duplicates of those in A. de I. 
It is likely that this bureau also possesses copies of many printed maps. 
The manuscript map in Biblioteca Vittorio Emanuele of the Palaos, we 
have already noted. The Bibliotheque Nationale of Paris has compara- 
tively few Philippine maps. At the British Museum is a large collection of 
printed maps, and a few manuscript maps. The latter are as follows: 

Bowery, T.:- Island of Mindanao or Magendanao with chart. Add. 
MSS. 5,222, art. 9. 

Camelli, G. J.:- Drawings of trees in the Philippine Islands, with de- 
scriptions in Latin. Add. MSS. 5,288.

21, 1797. In colors. Add. MSS. 17,642, E. 

The collection of engraved maps in the Library of Congress is a notable 
one. See P. Lee PhiUips's List of maps, charts, and views, which accom- 
panies Griffin's List of books. This shows 860 maps, etc., ranging in date 
from Magellan's time (reproductions) to 1903. General maps of various

parts of the world, containing the Philippine Islands, are not listed in Phil- 
lips's bibliography. Since then a number of maps have been acquired. 
Chief among them is a copy of the famous Murillo Velarde map, which was 
engraved by a Filipino in 1734. This map is described in our vol. xlix, 
p. 63, note 25. Without the accompanying figures, this map is reproduced 
in Murillo Velarde's Historian from an engraving of 1744. It was also 
reproduced by Bellin in 1752, and in his Pet, atlas mar, (Paris, 1764); and 
in Hist, Besch. Reizen (Amsterdam, 1758), xvii, p. 28. See also the mono- 
graphs by Pardo de Tavera and Gabriel Marcel regarding this map. Mr. 
Phillips is preparing at the present time a bibliography of atlases (both 
world and of special localities), which will contain a Philippine section. 
He is also preparing a bibliograhpy of universal cartography with copious 
annotations. This will contain much useful information concerning maps 
and their makers. The War Department Library in Washington possesses 
some good Spanish maps. The Hydrographic Oflfice of the War Depart- 
ment at Washington has published various maps; and the oflBce gathers 
data for maps and charts from every available source, by which they cor- 
rect the maps of the Coast and Geodetic Survey. Charts are furnished 
to all naval vessels, and sold to all vessels desiring them. The United States 
Coast and Geodetic Survey opened a sub-office at Manila, September 19, 
1900. Since that time the work of the department has been carried on con- 
tinuously, and many harbor and coast lines have been surveyed and 
charted, and the charts issued to the public at the cost of production. There 
is a complete set of these maps and charts at the office of the Coast and 
Geodetic Survey at Washington, and two sets are deposited in the Library 
of Congress. Sailing directions for the Philippine Islands have been pub- 
lished, as well as a catalogue of the maps and charts of the Survey (see 
post, p. 64). See the annual reports of the Philippine branch of the Sur- 
vey in the Reports of the Philippine Commission. Under the auspices of 
the government was published in 1900 the atlas prepared under the care of 
the Jesuits at Manila, which accompanies the two-vol. Archipielago filipina. 
Many maps and coast and harbor charts are reproduced in the Gazetteer 
of the Philippine Islands (Washington 1902). The American Geographi- 
cal Society issued a map in 1905 made up from the then latest data of the 
War Department. See also post, in the activities of the Bureau of Insular 
Affairs. 

Pp. 19, 20 of vol. iv of Bulletin of the N. Y. Public Library list a few 
Philippine maps. The Ayer Collection contains many Philippine maps. 
These are mainly printed, although there are a few in manuscript. 
There are some in the MS. on the Rio Grande de Mindanao; and one dated 
London, 17 19, by Rob't Friend, and showing various Oriental islands, is

drawn on parchment. There is also a loose printed map which shows the 
lower course of the Rio Grande de Mindanao, dated 1886, which was issued 
by the "Seccion topografica" of the Philippine government. This was 
purchased by Mr. Ayer from C. G. de T. de F., who priced it at 25 francs. 
It had formerly belonged to Retana, who had in turn purchased it of Vindel. 
The latter had acquired it from the heirs of General Terrero. Mr. Ayer's 
librarian, Miss Clara A. Smith, is at present compiling an index of all the 
maps of the collection, whether loose or contained in atlases, a portion 
of which will be devoted to Philippine maps. This index will be arranged 
chronologically by localities, and also by authors when known, and when 
obtainable, the name of the engraver will be given. Maps are listed in 
Maximilian Brose's Litteraturverzeichnis ( q, v,,post, p. 61). See the various 
maps (both printed and manuscript) reproduced in this series, as well as 
the map prepared especially for it; and vol. ii, p. 66, note 26, also vol. 
XLix, p. 205, note 130. 

Photographs and views.- The Philippine American government pos- 
sesses a large collection of photographs. Hon. Dean C. Worcester, of the 
Philippine Commission, also possesses a fine collection, many of which are of 
great value ethnologically. Through the cooperation of Mr. Worcester, 
Mr. Ayer has obtained copies of all the photographs in the above two col- 
lections. These relate to all the tribes of the Philippines that have been 
studied, illustrating manners and customs, industries, etc., and to various 
localities. In all Mr. Ayer's collection numbers more than 5,000, all of 
which are 5x7 inches in size. His collection is accompanied by a type- 
written index and description. Copies of these photographs are being made 
for the Field Museum, Chicago, from Mr. Ayer's collection. In the Na- 
tional Museum at Washington, is a third collection of photographs. The 
first instalment of this collection was sent by Rounseville Wildman, American 
Consul at Singapore, before the Spanish-American war. The second instal- 
ment consisted of about 200 photgraphs, which were given by Colonel H. H. 
Hilder, many of them taken by the donor. The third instalment is an 
almost complete set of the Worcester collection. The fourth instalment 
consists of some negatives sent in by the German scientist, A. B. Meyer. 
Photographs are extremely valuable for ethnological study. "^ 

'The Harper'' s Weekly for March 31, 1883 (vol. xirii, no. 1371) publishes an interesting 
and curious article by Lafcadio Heam, the famous writer, so well known for his articles on 
Japanese life. The article is called "Saint Malo. A lacustrine village in Louisiana." This 
village is located at the southeastern comer of Lake Borgne, not far distant from New 
Orieans, and was the home, says Heam, who was sent as special correspondent by the above 
paper to visit the settlement, for about a half century, of a colony of Tagalogs from the Phil- 
ippine Islands. In this marshy country, they lived as nearly in the manner of their own land 
as possible, with the exception that those who had families kept them in New Orleans, as there

Museums.- The two most notable museums are that of the Museo-Bi- 
blioteca de Ultramar (already described, ante, pp. 31, 32), and that of the 
National Museum, Washington. Owing to the crowded condition of the 
latter, it has been impossible to suitably display all of the Philippine collec- 
tion. Besides a few models of the inhabitants of the archipelago, the collection 
can boast of considerable material for ethnological study, consisting of 
basketry, weapons, etc. The aim in making the collection is to show the 
serious industrial life of the inhabitants of the Philippines. From this col- 
lection, trained scientists are studying the connection of the American Indian 
with the Orient -in short, are endeavoring to reconstruct into tangible 
facts the story of the Pacific Ocean, and migrations of peoples across it. 
The National Museum is in touch with men who are engaged in active field 
work in the Philippines, and with army and navy officers, from whom results 
are continually being received. 

Bureau of Insular Affairs - This bureau was created after the Spanish- 
American war as a component part of the War Department. It has held 
an important place in the history of the Philippines since that time. The 
publication department of the bureau is doing an important work in con- 
nection with the insular territory belonging to the United States. As regards 
the Philippines (and the same is true of all American insular possessions), 
the various lines of activity are as follows: 

1. The collection of all Senate and House documents, reports, hearings 
before committees, and all acts, treaties, and resolutions; also briefs and 
decisions of the Supreme Court. 

2. The collection of all publications issued by all departments and 
bureaus of the U. S., which are not published as government documents. 

3. Collection of all reports and all monographs issued by the Philippine 
government. 

4. Collection of all orders and circulars issued by the military authorities 
of the Philippines, as well as all circulars and general orders emanating from 
the office of the adjutant-general of the U. S. army. 

5. Collection of speeches regarding the islands by public men. 

6. Collection of maps. These include the maps issued by the Geodetic 
and Coast Survey, and other departments of the government. The Philip- 
pine maps now in possession of the bureau number 2,505, and there are 450 
different kinds. They include charts, blue prints, and topographical maps, 
were no women in the place. The houses were built on piles rising out of the water or marshy 
ground, and the under part was reserved as in the Philippines for swine and fowls. All the 
men were fishermen, and their chief diversion was gambling. They spoke their own language 
or Spanish. Above all, they maintained their identity, and refused to be merged in the 
population about them. Some interesting views are shown with this article. There is also 
at the present time a colony of Malays in the British West Indies.

7. From time to time, compilations and monographs are prepared in the 
office and published. Also the Bureau pubUshes a quarterly (formerly 
monthly) summary of the commerce of the islands, and has under prepara- 
tion at the present time (April, 1907) a second edition of the acts, treaties, 
etc., of the 58th Congress. A useful compilation of the land laws of the 
Philippines has also been published. The Bureau also publishes annually 
the acts of the Philippine Commission, and the report of the same. A 
second edition of the Gazetteer of the Philippine Islands has been prepared 
and is practically ready for press. It is also part of the work of this bureau 
to give out press notices. Bound files of Manila papers are also kept. 

The various documents are bound into separate volumes, all extraneous 
matter being thrown away, and a typewritten contents page made for each 
volume, so that consultation is rendered easy. The Bureau has also 
prepared an analytical index of all the documents, but it has not yet been 
published for want of an appropriation. This is of great value, and will 
facilitate research in the many rich government documents that have been 
published on the Philippines since American occupation. See the annual 
reports of the chief of the Bureau of Insular Affairs for 1901-1906, where 
the work of the bureau is well outlined. In the publication rooms of the 
bureau are the galley proofs of the five volumes of insurgent papers, which 
are compiled by Captain John R. M. Taylor, U. S. A. These papers, not- 
withstanding their importance, are still awaiting a special appropriation from 
Congress in order that they may be published. Vols, i and ii consist mainly 
of compilations by the editor, and to them are appended bibliographical 
lists of books consulted in the compilation. 

The pamphlets, monographs, etc., being published continually by the 
various branches of the Philippine government are very important and merit 
study. Many of these form the first studies ever made in the field covered 
by them, for during the entire Spanish regime there was but little scientific 
study that merited the name. There is an excellent opening for earnest 
scientific work that will prove of lasting value. The Bureau of Govern- 
ment Laboratories has already justified its creation in the work that has 
emanated therefrom. For the various publications of this bureau, see the 
inside cover pages of the various bulletins. 

Sales catalogues.- One of the most prolific sources for the study of Philip- 
pine bibliography is offered by the sales catalogues of booksellers of various 
countries. We have listed a very few of such catalogues in section 11 of our 
bibliography of printed titles, but have made no effort to list them all. He 
who desires to avail himself of such study may consult the catalogues of the 
following: Anllo, Capdeville, Cuesta, Bernardo Rico, Gabriel Sanchez, 
Perdiguero, Victoriano Suarez, Viuda de Rico, Eugenio Garcia Rico, and P.

PHILIPPINE BIBLIOGRAPHIES AND IMPORTANT 
BIBLIOGRAPHICAL LISTS 



ViDAL Y SoLER, Sebastian : — Mcmoria sobre el ramo de montes en las 
Islas Filipinas. Madrid: Imprenta, estereotipia y galvanoplastia de 
Aribau y C.*, 1874. Pp. (4), 456. Engraving. 4°. 

Pp. 237-450 contain "Lista de algunas obras y articulos importantes referentes k los 
paises del extremo oriente," of which pp. 249-296 are exclusively titles on the Philippines 
(titles 108-353). Some of the titles are annotated. Notwithstanding Retana's criticisms 
(for instance, see Estadismoy ii, p. *346), Vidal y Soler shows breadth of mind and grasp 
in the titles listed. Besides the purely Philippine titles (section ii), the other divisions 
are: general works on colonization and voyages; the Malayan archipelago - Java, 
Sumatra, Borneo, Timor, Molucas, and Celebes; English India - Hindostan, Ceylon, 
Birmania, and Malacca; China and Japan; and Cochinchina, Cambodga, Anam, and 
Siam. English and Dutch titles are listed. Naturally some titles of these divisions 
contain Philippina also. Arranged alphabetically. The edition of this book was limited 
to 300 copies. 

Blumentritt, Ferdinand : — Vocabular einzelner Ausdriicke und Redens- 

arten, welche dem Spanischen der Philippinischen Inseln eigenthiimlich 

sind. Mit einem Anhange: Bibliotheca Philippina. Alphabetisch ge- 

ordnete Sammlung einer Anzahl von Druckschriften und Manuscripten 

linguistischen, geographischen, ethnographischen, historischen und natur- 

wissenschaftlichen Inhalts, die auf die Philippinen Bezug haben. [Lett- 

meritz: 1882-1885.] Pp. viii, 131, (i), (6), 64. 4°. 

There are two parts with the above title. On the title-page of part i, is the imprint 
*'Druck von Dr. Karl Pickert in Leitmeritz.'* The title-page to part 2 shows no imprint. 
The preface of part i (dedicated to J. C. Labhart-Lutz, consul at Manila) has a preface 
dated Leitmeritz, July 14, 1882. Pp. 1-79 contain the Vocabulary of which Retana says 
many of the words are what are called "Kitchen Spanish," or Spanish words Tagalized. 
The bibliography is divided into three parts: I. Linguistic titles (printed and manuscript), 
pp. 83-88. n. Printed titles, pp. 91-127. HI. Manuscripts (other than linguistic), 
pp. 128-13 1. Q^ *^c obverse of p. 131 are two other linguistic titles, and one printed title. 
The preface of part 2 (dedicated to T. H. Pardo de Tavera) is dated "Leitmeritz, July 15, 
1885." The Vocabular occupies pp. 1-25; and the bibliography, pp. 29-35 (Linguistic 
titles, printed and manuscript), and pp. 39-64 (printed and manuscript), in all, citing 43 1 
numbers (some of which contain several titles). A note on the title-page of the Ayer copy 
says that this work was not sold in the market. Notwithstanding their inaccuracies and 
errors, these vocabularies will be found extremely useful for preliminary studies of the 
Philippines. The titles listed are not confined to the Spanish. See Pardo de Tavera, 
Biblioteca flipina, pp. 63-65; and Retana, Aparato bibiiogrdficoy iiy pp. 929, 930. See also 
Griffin's List, p. 3, where it appears that the Library of Congress possesses but the first 
part of this work, which Griffin says is reprinted from "Communal-Ober-Realschule in

On pp. 232-248 is a bibliographical list of Philippine titles arranged alphabetically by 

authors. This list contains many inaccuracies and errors, and is of little value. Retana 

says {Bihl. fil., p. 194) that this work was first published by articles in the Revista de Filipinas 

and that bad as it is, it is one of the "least bad of those of recent years." Pardo de 

Tarera, in Bihl. jf/., p. 277, says that it is of no value; and notes that he speaks of Piga- 

fetta as "the pretended companion of Magallanes." Moya y Jimenez was an artillery 

commander in the Philippines.

seguidas del Ensayo de una biblioteca de dominicos espanoles. Madrid : 

[Imprenta de Antonio Perez Dubrull], 1884. Pp. (8), 430, (i). 8°. 

The bibliography occupies pp. 229-430. It is not at all complete, and contains some 
errors. Cited by Retana, Aparato hibl.y ii, pp. 992, 993. The author has published numer- 
ous other works, among them Ruditnentos de geografia descriptiva (Manila, 1872), that 
contains a number of blunders that can be excused only by the grossest kind of 
ignorance. 

Barrantes, Vicente : — Coleccion de corridos presentada por el excmo. 
Sr. D. V. Barrantes. Madrid: 1887. 

In Catdlogo de la exposicion general de las Islas Filipinas celebrada en Madrid inaugurada 
por S. M. la reina regente el 50 de Junio de i88y (Madrid, 1887), appendix, pp. 713-732. 
The Corridos, as explained by Barrantes, constitute the popular poetry of the Filipinos, 
and are comparable to the old Spanish romances, relations, etc. Fifty-six titles are re- 
corded, each accompanied by a Spanish translation, and to each one the beginning and 
conclusion are given, and various comments. Retana {Aparato hihl., iii, p. 1068), says 
that Barrantes has listed under the title of Corridos, titles not properly so. The Ayer 
Collection contains many titles of Corridos. Retana, Catdlogo, p. viii, criticises the biblio- 
graphical work of Barrantes severely for lack of precision, but praises his comments. 

El teatro tagalo. Madrid: M, G. Hernandez, 1889 (on the cover 

page, 1890). Pp. 200. 40. 

Contains a bibliographical appendix of the Passion (pp. 143-166), and another on lan- 
guages (pp. 167-199), both made partly from memory, and consequently of doubtful value. 
This work was first published in La Ilustracion Artistica of Barcelona, and later in the 
Revista Contempordnea, the forms of the latter being used in the book. (See Vindel, Catd- 
logo, iv, p. 253.)

time to time. The arrangement of the titles is according to their location in Retana's 
library. Many of these titles are listed in Retana's Archivo (Madrid, 1 895-1 898), and all of 
them in his Catdlogo ahreviado (Madrid, 1898). The forms of La Politica were utilized in 
printing the Catdlogo of 1893 {q.v.). At its inception, the director of La Politica was Jos6 
Feced, and the editors for 1 891 -1895 were Pablo Feced and W. E. Retana. Beginning with

Published first in La Politica, for 1892 and 1893 (q.v.y ante), the forms of which were 
utilized in the present publication. It is, at least in part, printed on only one side of the 
paper. The edition was limited to 30 copies, and they were not placed on sale. A 
note by Retana says that the 4 copies given to the government, as required by law, were 
printed on very poor paper with narrow margins. Describes 556 titles.

Appendix B in Retana's edition of Joaquin Martinez de Zuniga's Estadismo de las 
Islas Filipinas 6 mis viajes por este pais, (Madrid: [Imprenta de la viuda de M. Minuesa 
de los Rios], 1893. 2 vols., 8°), ii, pp. 93*-*352. This bibliography is divided into two 
parts - introduction, in which is given some history of printing in the Philippines from 
its introduction to the present era; and a list of "works cited by Father Zuniga, those 
consulted by us for the compilation of these appendices, and other works which have been 
the object of our examination through their scientific merit, or because of their rarity." 
Pp. io5*-i23* comprise a valuable list of **the presses, printers, and places where there 
were or are presses." In the list of titles (384 in all, many of which were formerly in the 
valuable Gayangos collection), are some facsimiles of title-pages of rare imprints. In the 
prologo of vol. i, there is bibliographical matter by Retana on pp. vii-xxxviii, in which 
various interesting and important details concerning Martinez de Zuniga's writings are to 
be found. On p. xviii, it is to be noted that Retana mentions the translation of Le 
Gentil made by Martinez de Zuniga {q.v., p. 374), the location of which he does not know, 
and asserts - following the statement of Martinez de Zuniga, viz., *' although M. Le 
Gentil does not believe it; see my note to these voyages, which I have translated into 
Spanish, and which are being printed''- that this translation was printed. It is 
probable, however, that none of this translation was printed, and that Martinez de 
Zuniga simply made the statement in view of the fact that it was ready for the press. See 
Retana's Catalogo (1898), p. x, no. x. 

Bibliografia de Mindanao. Madrid : Imp. de la Viuda de M. Minuesa 

de los Rios, 1894. Pp. 69, (2, first blank, second with colophon). 12°. 

Preceded by a short preface. There are 174 titles in all, some of which are MSS. The 

author calls this work an epitome, and simple guide; and says {Catalogo, p. x) that it 

was the work of one week, being made because of the complaint of a daily newspaper 

that nothing had ever been written on the island of Mindanao. 

El Periodismo Filipino. Noticias para su historia (1811-1894). Ma- 
drid: En la imprenta de la Viuda de M. Minuesa de los Rios, 1895. 
Pp. (4), 646, (2). Indices. 12°. 

As indicated on the title-page, this book contains, besides the bibliographical matter, 
biographical notes and sketches, critical notes, and anecdotes. The colophon states that 
the first 576 pp. were printed in 1894, and the remainder of the book in January and 
February of 1895. The appendices consist of an article by J. T. Medina, " El primer 
peri6dico de Filipinas,''' dated Sevilla, November 30, 1894; ''Adiciones y rectificaciones," 
by T. H. Pardo de Tavera, dated Paris, 1893; "Notas y adiciones," by Pedro Torres y

Lanzas, dated Sevilla, December, 1894; and *'Peri6dicos manuscritos," by Descngafios 
(Retana's nom de plume), taken from La Oceania Espanolay of Manila, Oct., 1887. 
This work was first published in various numbers of La Politica de Espana en Filipinas 
{q.v., ante, p. 57), and the forms as published there were utilized for the above publication, 
so that many of the right-hand pages are blank or almost so (see Pardo de Tavera's 
Bihl. fil.f p. 354). Reedited and enlarged, it is published as a monograph in Retana^s 
Aparato hihl.f iii, nos. 4461-4623. 

Epitome de la bibliografia general de Filipinas. 1 895-1 898. 

This is published in Retana's Archivo (Madrid, 1895-1898) as follows: I. No. 11, 
pp. 84, titles, 1-270; II. No. 13, pp. 56, titles, 271-505; III. No. 5, pp. 48, titles, 506-720; 
IV. No. 9, pp. 98, titles, 721-1,167. This was to have been continued in future volumes 
of the Archivo, but the publication of the series stopped until 1905, and the epitome was 
never resumed. However, since the titles published in these four volumes are those for- 
merly contained in the collection owned by Retana, and sold to the Compania general de 
Tabacos de Filipinas, Barcelona, the continuation will be found in Retana's Bibliografia 
flipina (Madrid, 1898), and all the titles will be found as well in Retana 's Aparato 
hihl. The first four volumes, bearing dates 1895, 1896, 1897, and 1898, respectively, 
were published by La Viuda de M. Minuesa de los Rios, and the fifth volume, dated 1905, 
by Libreria general de Victoriano Suarez. The documents published by Retana are rare 
imprints, original MSS. from various archives, and contemporary compilations. He also 
publishes in the first four volumes, a partial list of the books in his library (see above); 
and in volume v, some historical bibliographical notes (see below). For the titles of the 
documents, etc. presented by Retana in the first four vols., see Griffin's List', and Pardo 
de Tavera's Bihl. fl., p. 355, no. 2354. The contents of the fifth vol. are as follows: I. 
Itinerario del P. Custodio Fray Martin Ignacio, franciscano (reproduced from the first 
edition, Roma, 1585) - [see our vol. vi, pp. 134-153, where we have reproduced the Itinerario 
from the Madrigal edition of 1586]. 11. Memorial del P. Fr. Francisco de Zamora,

Minuesa de los Rios. 1896. Pp. 32. 160. 

One hundred copies printed at the cost of W. E. Retana. Consists of 404 titles, of which 
no details are given. Ail the titles of this work will be found in Retana's Imprenta en 
Filipinas, and in Perez and Giiemes's Adiciones y continuacion. The Epitome was first 
published in La Politica de Espana, vii, pp. 20-23, 47"49> 67-69. See the title immediately 
following. Medina takes high rank as a bibliographer, as his Philippine and American 
bibliographies show. A native of Chile, and at first interested solely in American bib- 
liographical research, he was led to his research in Philippina by noting that it overlaps 
to a considerable degree with Mexicana. Much of Retana's work appears to have been 
suggested by Medina. See other titles by Medina, post, pp. 59, 62, 80, 92.

much bibliographical information, is divided as follows : notes on the earliest printing in 
the Philippines; early printing and the press of the college of Santo Tomas; press of the 
Franciscans; press of the Jesuits; press of the ecclesiastical seminary; press of the 
Augustinians ; Filipino engravers; general considerations in regard to Filipino printers 
and books; libraries of Filipino books. Following the introduction are several 
documents on printing in the Philippines. Retana says (Vindel, CatdJogo, iv, p. 283, 
no. 1473), that this work is, strictly speaking, the first complete bibliography that has been 
compiled of printing in the Philippines. See the continuation of this work, post^ p. 62. 

Bibliografia espanola de las Islas Filipinas (1523-18 10). Santiago de 

Chile: Imprenta Cervantes, 1898. Pp. 556. Index. 4°. 

Although the imprint reads "1897,'' the colophon on p. 556 states that the printing 
was finished Aug. 10, 1898. 

Retana {Bihl. fil., p. 449) describes a de luxe edition (10 copies only). The above edi- 
tion was limited to 200 copies. This work was first published in tomo xcvii of the Andes 
de la universidad de Chile. Describes 667 titles. Medina defines "Spanish bibliography 
of the Philippine Islands" as follows: "the subject matter, the place of printing, the 
language in which they are written [Spanish and Latin] and the nationality of the authors 
are the fundamental bases of classification." No MSS. or books printed in the Philippines 
are included, the latter already having been listed in La Imprenta de Manila. Some 
documents from the Archive de Indias are, however, presented in illustration of various 
titles. There are also numerous biographical notices, and many references to other 
bibliographers. The work is carefully done, and is one of the best sources for the study 
of Philippina. It is highly praised by Retana (Vindel's CatdlogOy iv, p. 283, no. 1474).

published at Retana's expense. Contains a short preface or introductory letter by the 
author, addressed to Retana, and dated Sevilla, Aug. 1896. There are 139 maps, plans, 
etc., ranging in date from 1 565-1 847 (many of which are MSS.). A number of these have 
been reproduced in photographic facsimile in our series. Author (where known), size, 
and location of each are given. Torres Lanzas has missed a few maps, among which 
may be noted the following: "Piano de la nueva Alcayzeria que debe construirse en el 
Barrio destruido de Mabolo, 1783. — In colors; Remesa del Ministcrio de Ultramar; 
Audiencia de Filipinas; consultas, expedientes y resoluciones del consejo, camara y 
ministros; aiios 1777-1801; leg. 2°." It is possible that maps of later date than 1847 
will be found at the Hydrographical oflSce in Madrid. This is a work of great value to 
the Philippine researcher.

6o THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

Retana y Gamboa, Wenceslao Emilio: — Catalogo abreviado de la 
biblioteca filipina de W. E. Retana. Madrid : [Imprenta de la Viuda de 
M. Minuesa de los Rios], 1898. Pp. xxxviii, 652, (3). Tables of authors 
and subjects. 8°. 

Edition limited to 85 copies (5 de luxe)y only 40 of which were put on sale. In addition 
one was bound up for the author's own use, in which are manuscript additions and notes. 
This is now the property of the Compania general de Tabacos de Fihpinas, which pur- 
chased ail the Retana collection. Describes 2,697 titles which are arranged chrono- 
logically. The prologo (pp. v-xxxviii) contains valuable information concerning his own 
and other bibliographies of Philippina; and in regard to valuable collections of Philip- 
pina. It is to be noted in this connection that the statement that there are no printed 
books in Archivo general de Indias is too sweeping. Those archives possess several of 
the rarer titles, among which is Alvarez de Abreu's Extracto historiaJ. On pp. xiiii- 
xxvii is a list of 112 newspapers that were published in the Philippines from 1811-1898. 
This work is carefully done and is of great use to the bibliographer and student. It 
contains few works outside of Spanish and the languages of the Philippines. 

San Francisco Free Public Library: — Bulletin. Vol. iv. San Fran- 
cisco: 1898. 

In no. 6 (June), pp. 68, 69, is a short list of Philippine titles, mainly recent ; classified 
thus: Historical and descriptive; and the present insurrection and recent events.

Islands. Boston: The Boston Book Co., 1899. Pp. 8. 8°. 

No. 7 of Bulletin of Bibliography Pamphlets. Contains 43 numbers. Lacks definite- 
ness, and is poor in arrangement, although it contains some information of value to the 
student. Extensive use has been made of Retana.

Adiciones y observaciones a La imprenta en Manila de D. J. T. Medi- 
na. Madrid: [Viuda de M. Minuesa de los Rios, 1899.] 276 columns 
+ pp. (5). Index. Folder with 6 facsimile title-pages. 4°. 

The title-page gives publication date as 1897, but the colophon says that the printing 
was finished May 12, 1899. The essential part of this work was first published in La 
Politica for 1897-1898 {q.v.y ante). Edition limited to 206 copies, 6 copies being de luxe. 
The contents of this book are as follows: establishment of printing in the Philippines; 
presses of the Dominicans, Franciscans, Jesuits, seminary, and Augustinians ; Filipino 
engravers; many unpublished MSS.; binding; libraries containing Philippina; Jesuit 
inventory {q.v., post, p. 93); list of titles, corrections, and additions (16-19 centuries); 
list of the Manila imprints described by Medina and Retana (in all 541 titles; see Medina"*s 
Imprenta en Manila, ante, p. 58, and post, p. 80). The corrections and additions to 
Medina's work are given under 212 heads; of which 120 are titles not mentioned by 
Medina. This is a very useful book, as much for the general bibliographical information 
it contains as for its Manila imprints.

BIBLICX5RAPHY-PRINTED BOOKS 6 1 

This bulletin treats of the following matters : works of general information ; authorities 
on Philippine dialects; some literary curios among PhiHppina; Philippine presses; and 
introduction of printing into the Philippines. The information is drawn almost entirely 
from Retana (mainly from his Catdlogo). 

New York Public Library: — Works relating to the Philippine Islands 

in the New York Public Library. New York: igoo. 

In Bulletin^ vol. ir, pp. 19-29. This bibliography is classified under the heads of bibliog- 
raphy; maps; manuscripts; early printed accounts; description and history; local 
description and history; war of 1898, etc.; literature, etc.; ethnology and philology; 
economics, sociology, etc.; the church; and magazine articles. All the MSS., and the 
greater part of the valuable books are located in the Lenox branch. The MSS. (13 in 
number) appear to be transcripts or duplicates from the Mufioz collection of MSS. in the 
Real Academia de la Historia, Madrid. 

Brose, Maximilian: — Litteraturverzeichnis iiber die Philippinen. 1900- 

1901. 

In Beitrdge zur KoloniaJpolitik und KoloniaJwirtschaft (Berlin, 1900-1901), ii, pp. 63? 
64, 95, 96, and 1 14-122. The third instalment contains a list of titles to maps (pp. 121, 
122). The compiler is librarian of the Deutsche Kolonial Gesellschaft, of which this 
publication is the organ. Many of the titles, all of which are comparatively modern, 
treat of scientific matters, and some are taken from periodical publications or the publica- 
tions of learned societies. Limited in its scope, it presents, however, some excellent 
titles. 

Becker, George F. : — Report on the Geology of the Philippine Islands. 

In Twenty-first annual report of the U. S. Geol. Survey (Washington, 

1901), part iii, pp. 487-614. 

On pp. 594-605 is a list of books and papers that treat of Philippine geology. This is 
a useful and valuable list to the student, furnishing a good working bibliography. 

Retana y Gamboa, Wenceslao Emilio : — Catalogo de obras filipinas 

que ofrece en venta W. E. Retana. Madrid: Claudio Coello, [1902]. 

Pp. 160. 8°. 

Printed at Barcelona: Imp. ''El siglo xx."" In a letter to the Editors dated Feb. 21, 
1907, Retana says: *'The Catdlogo de los Jibros que ofrece en venta W. E. Retana^ without 
date, was published in 1902. As a matter of fact the books belonged to the Compania 
de Tabacos de Filipinas, and the company managed the sale, making use of my name 
to exploit it better. At that time (1902), I was governor of Teruel, and did not consider 
it prudent to date the pamphlet." There are 906 titles. Such rare books as Acosta^s 
Tractado de las Jro^^i ^ (Burgos, 1578), Aduarte'*s Historia (Manila, 1640; and 
Zarago^a, 1693), and Alvarez de Abreu's Extracto historid (Madrid, 1736) are found 
therein.

of Congress. A list of books (with references to periodicals) on the 
Philippine Islands in the Library of Congress. . . . With chrono- 
logical list of maps in the Library of Congress by P. Lee Phillips. Wash- 
ington: Government Printing Office, 1903. Pp. xv, (i), 397. Indices. 4°. 

The first part of the volume fills pp. 1-265. ^^ contains titles actually in the library 
when the bibliography was made or titles already ordered of dealers (pp. 1-177, and 
228-232; many of them being government documents, but some of them the rarest of 
the works on history); United States Consular Reports (pp. 178-180); articles in 
periodicals (pp. 181-226 and 233); MSS. (p. 227); and author and subject indices. The 
second part shows a list of 860 maps, charts, and plans, ranging in date from 1599 to 1897. 
The book titles are arranged by subject, and the list is of great use to the student. It is 
highly praised by Retana in his Aparato bibliogrdfico (1906). Both the list of books and 
that of maps have been consulted frequently in the course of the present series. In one 
volume, together with Dr. Pardo de Tavera's Biblioteca filipina (q.v,y post, p. 62), this 
was published first as Senate Document no. 74, 2d session of the 57th Congress.

62 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

Llorens Asensio, Vicente : — La primera vuelta al mundo. Relacion 
documentada del viaje de Hernando de Magallanes y Juan Sebastian 
del Cano. — 1519-1522. Sevilla: Imp. de la "Guia Comercial," 1903. 
Pp. 179, (i). 16°. 

On pp. 17-32 are presented two original documents whose originals exist in Archivo 
general de Indias: the first, the memorial presented to Carlos I by Magalhaes and Faleiro; 
the second, the agreement between the Spanish sovereigns and the above two men for the 
discovery of the spice islands. Several facsimiles of original signatures are given. The 
narrative of the author occupies pp. 33-70, and his annotations, pp. 71-85. The most 
important part of the book is the citation of documents in the Archive general de Indias 
with indication of those already published (incomplete), and presentation of some of those 
never before published (in all, 208 titles, with dates 1493-1568), pp. 88-179. This list of 
titles includes those immediately connected with the first voyage proper, the bulls of Alex- 
ander VI, and those concerning various matters that grew out of the concession bulls and 
the voyage. 

Pardo de Tavera, Dr. Trinidad Hipolito : — Biblioteca Filipina 6 sea 
catalogo razonado de todos los impresos, tanto insulares como extran- 
jeros, relatives a la historia, la etnografia, la lingiiistica, la botanica, la 
fauna, la flora, la geologia, la hidrografia, la geografia, la legislacion, etc., 
de las Islas Filipinas, de Jolo y Marianas. Washington : Government 
Printing Office, 1903. Pp. 439. 4°. 

Arranged alphabetically. Describes 2850 titles. Printed from the same plates as the 
edition bound with the bibliography of the Library of Congress. Contains a prologo in 
Spanish. Many of the titles are annotated with critical notes and biographies of the 
authors. For some of the titles, location of copies is given. Retana (Aparato hihliogrdfcoy 
i, pp. vii, viii; iii, p. 1479) criticises this work harshly, seemingly with a great deal of per- 
sonal feeling. Pardo de Tavera's prologo contains considerable important bibliographical 
information. It was the aim of the compiler to furnish a good working bibliography 
rather than one replete with minute descriptions that would appeal more to the bibliophile. 
The author of this work is well known as a scholar and as a member of the Philippine 
Commission. 

Medina, Jose Toribio : — La imprenta en Manila desde sus origenes 
hasta 18 10. Adiciones y ampliaciones. Santiago de Chile: Impreso 
y grabado en casa del autor, 1904. Pp. xi, 203. Index. 4°. 

In this vol., Medina adds new nos. 421-565 (pp. 5-150), and adds (pp. 153-196) to the 
old numbers of his vol. of 1896 various data. Many biographical notes are appended to 
the various authors. The author acknowledges aid from Retana's La imprenta en Fili- 
pinas (Madrid, 1899). A scholarly work. 

Robertson, James Alexander: — Ayer collection of Philippina. New 

York: 1904. 

In the Nation for July 14, 1904; vol. 79, pp. 31-32.

reunida y puesta en venta por P. Vindel. Madrid: Calle del Prado, 
num. 9, 1904. Pp. 444. 80. 

This catalogue is vol. i of the Biblioteca flipina, and vol. iv of VindeFs Catalogo (see 
postf p. 63). It is divided into the classes of large publications, jurisprudence and legis- 
lation, agriculture, industry, commerce, sciences, arts and letters, various matters, and 
political. This catalogue was in great part compiled by W. E. Retana (1800 titles), while 
others were furnished by the younger Barrantes, and Vindel himself furnished some of the 
matter. Vindel acquired all of Medina's rare titles; many of those of the duque de T'Ser- 
claes; the entire collection of Barrantes; and other collections (see Retana, Aparato 
bibl., iii, p. 1482). On pp. 31-42 of the catalogue are facsimile headings of many Philippine

Lete, Eduardo de: — Notas para la bibliografia nacional, 1907. 

In El Renacimiento for June 28, 1907. In this article, Lete corrects Tarious matters 
in regard to the newspaper La Solidaridad, published first in Barcelona and later in Ma-

in regard to a poem. 

Retana y Gamboa, Wenceslao Emilio: — Tercer centenario de la im-

In El Renacimiento for September 10, 1907. In this article Retana advances the idea 
for the celebration of the third anniversary of printing from movable type in the Philip- 
pines (1610); but the usefulness of the suggestions are greatly obscured by the writer's 
unfortunate display of arrogant egotism and his complaints of lack of recognition by the 
Filipinos.

Leon Pinelo, Antonio de : — Epitome de la biblioteca oriental i occi- 
dental, nautica i geografica. . . . Madrid: luan Gonzalez, 1629. 
Pp. (88), 186, xij, (i). 40. 

The author was an official of the Council of the Indies. In his work he gives titles of 
both printed books and MSS., and although wanting at times in exactness, and often 
omitting dates, his work is extremely useful. He was the first bibliographer to list Philip- 
pine titles. Titulo vii (pp. 80-82) is devoted entirely to Moiuccan and Phihppine titles. 
Retana, who says that this is the first colonial bibliography ever published, gives (Apa- 
rato bibliogrdfico, pp. 95, 96), Leon Pinelo ""s Philippine titles. Imprints of Macabebe 
and other rare titles before 1628 are listed. See Retana's Aparato hihliogrdfco, i. 

Nicolas Antonio (see post), copied Leon Pinelo 's book almost wholly. Job Ludolfo in 
his Commentaries to his Historia de Etiopia included the titulo entire that treats of those 
kingdoms. Alonso Lasor de Varea (pseudonym of Rafael Savonarola) copied considerable 
in his Orhe de la tierra delineado con las plumas de los escritores, especially the geographical 
part. Rodriguez, the Trinitarian, in his Bihliotheca Faleniina, Quetif and Echard 
(see post\ Juan de San Antonio, O. S. F., (see post), also used the work, and it is praised 
by many authors. The vol. owes its origin to a private list of books concerning the Indies, 
asked of Leon Pinelo by the duke of Medina de las Torres. See Barcia, i, proemio. The 
copy of this rare book examined by us belongs to the Boston Public Library, and came 
originally from the convent of San Joseph de Tacubaya, as a manuscript note by the 
librarian of the convent states. See post, the second edition of this work, with additions 
and corrections by Gonzalez de Barcia (Madrid, 1737, 1738). Ochoa, CatdJogo raxonado, 
p. 82, mentions a manuscript copy as existing in the Biblioth^que Royalle of Paris. It was 
made about the end of the seventeenth century and consists of 77 leaves, bound in parch- 
ment. 

Alegambe, Phillip, S. J : — Bibliotheca scriptorvm Societatis lesv.

Contains many Philippine titles, and is valuable to the student, although many titles are 
not exact. See Medina's estimate of Antonio's work {Imprenta en Manila, p. Ixviii).

de las Indias orientales, y occidentales . . . , Madrid: En la oficina 

de Francisco Martinez Abad, 1737, 1738. 3 vols. F°. 

Leon Pinelo^s Epitome of 1629 {q.v,y ante) serves as the basis for this work, but it is 
very greatly enlarged. Titulo vii of vol. ii is devoted entirely to Philippine and Moluccas 
historical titles; and other sections of the work contain Philippine titles (among them 
Magalhaes and Pigafetta material). A most important work, not only for the study of the 
Philippines, but for America, and other parts. The Lenox copy is a large paper copy 
and is in excellent condition. See Medina, Bihl. esp.y pp. 394-396.

This is the second edition, and has additions and corrections by Antonio himself. The 
author was a knight of the Order of Santiago, a canon in the church, procurator general 
at the Roman papal court, and royal counselor. He died in April, 1684. The preface 
bears date May 15, 1787. The book is written in Latin, and the authors' names are 
latinized, though the titles of their works arc left in the language in which they were written. 
Both imprints and MSS. are cited in the volumes. Many titles of Philippina are cited. 
The arrangement is alphabetical by the first names. An important bibhography. See 
the first ed., antCi p. 66.

nese writers who went to the PhiHppines (all members of the religious orders), and names 
their productions, both printed books and MSS., as well as all others who wrote concerning 
the Philippines. The Ticknor collection of the Boston Public Library contains a set of 
this rare work. It covers the dates 1500-1802.

autograph letters to Alcedo. 4°. 

The author held the military title "mariscal de campo'' and was governor of La Plata 
de la Corufia. This is his MS., as is attested by the various porsonal letto's at the end 
that were sent him. On folio 468 is the following note by Obadiah Rich, the bookseller: 
"I found this MS. at a bookstall during the fair at Madrid in 1830. Twenty reeds of vellon 
was the price asked for it. In 1845 I gave it in exchange for books to M. Temaux Corn- 
pans, and in this year 1848 bought it from him with all his Spanish Manuscripts. 15

the death of the author March 23, 18 17, only 184 pp. of the first vol. had been printed. 
The continuance of the publication is due to his nephew, Rafael Enriquez Trespalados 
Beristain. This book contains some rare titles treating of the Philippines, as well as bio- 
graphical notices. It is an important work. See Medina^s estimate of this work (Im- 
prenta en Manila, pp. Ixviii, Ixix). The copy owned by Lenox branch of the N. Y. Public

Societe de geographic. 1837. Pp. viii, igi. 8°. 

Some few of the titles have matter pertaining to the Philippines. Retana praises Ter- 
naux-Compans highly. Medina (Imprenta en Manila^ p. Ixix), says that while some titles 
of great rarity are cited, others that have no existence are given, and the utmost faith 
cannot be given to Ternaux-Compans.

date], 40. Pp. 281-347 (being the continuation of the above). 

The titles are chronological, and Philippina are numerous. As noted by Retana, Aparato

A supplement under the same title, and called part ii, was published by the same authors 
in 1848 after the collection had been bequeathed to the British Museum, which was printed 
by order of the trustees. Part iii (prepared by W. B. Rye) was issued under the auspices 
of the Museum, in 1872. This last part contains a general index. A few titles of Philip- 
pina are found.

Various titles of Philippina are listed, with prices, which are exceedingly low compared 
with those of today. For instance a Murillo Velarde is offered for 20 francs; a San 
Augustin, for 24; and a San Antonio, for 55. Salva's catalogues are rare.

Contains many Philippine titles in section vi, Indias, Africa, Asia, both historical and

riod of the Spanish regime as 1895. These prices should be compared with those of the 
present day. Also see other catalogues (especially those since 1898), issued by Quaritch;

i8th centuries. No. 2629 is the Ventura del Arco MSS. now in the Ayer Collection (q.v., 
post, pp. 391-99). Although Vindel's prices are so high as to render almost prohibitive 
any purchases from him, his catalogues are well worth study by the bibliographer or 
student. Catalogue vols, iv and v, we Hst under '"'Bibliographies*' as they treat entirely of 
Philippine titles (see antCy pp. 62, 63).

Contains notes on books in the Tagalog and Chinese languages printed in the Philip- 
pines. A second edition was published in Valladolid in 1614. What purports to be a 
third edition, but which was in reality a new book twice the size of the first two editions, 
was published at Madrid in 1620. This contains bibliographical notes not in the aboTe 
two editions. The so-called fourth edition was published at Madrid in 1627, and the so- 
called fifth and last edition at the College of Santo Thomas de Alcala, in 1653. All cited 
by Vindel, Catdlogo, v, pp. 38-42.

There is considerable bibliographical information contained in the lires of the various 
Jesuits; and this author is cited frequently by Sommervogel in his Bibliotheque. The 
map is the first detailed chart of the Philippines published. It was engraved in 1744 by 
the native Filipino Nicolas de la Cruz Bagay, although the first engraving (published 
separately) seems to have been in 1734. It is even yet esteemed a good map. Besides 
using this author widely for annotation, we have made special use of his work as follows: 
''Description of the natives of Filipinas." Vol. xl, pp. 284-286, note 331. "Comments

THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 



Stanley, Henry E. J. (trans, and ed.):— The Philippine Islands, Moluc- 
cas, Siam, Cambodia, Japan, and China, at the close of the sixteenth cen- 
tury. By Antonio de Morga. Translated from the Spanish, with notes 
and a preface, and a letter from Luis Vaez de Torres, describing his voyage 
through the Torres Straits. London: Printed for the Hakluyt Society, 
1868. Pp. xxiv, (2), 431. Index. 8°. 
Pp. i-vi contain bibliographical matter. 
[Barrantes, Vicente] :— Apuntes interesantes sobre las Islas Filipinas que 
pueden ser utiles para hacer las reformas convenientes y productivas 
para el pais y para la nacion. Escritos por un espanol de larga esperien- 
cia en el pais y amante del progreso. Madrid: Imprenta de El Pueblo, 
i86g (title on cover reads 1870). Pp. 281. 80. 

Rev. T. C. Middleton, O. S. A., says that Rev. Casimiro Herrero, O. S. A., bishop of 
Nueva Caceres, aided Barrantes greatly in this work. Appendix iv (pp. 253-256) is en- 
titled in the index ""Escritores que han producido los conventos de Filipinas." This is 
laudatory of the work of the friar in literary lines. Pardo de Tavcra, Bibl. fil.y p. 28, no. 
91, says that the work has no value, and was written to defend the religious communities. 
Perrando, Juan, O. P.; and Fonseca, Joaquin, O. P.:— Historia de los 
PP. Dominicos en las Islas Filipinas y en sus Misiones del Japon, China, 
Tung-Kin y Formosa. Madrid: Imprenta y estereotipia de M. Riva- 
deneyra, 1870. 6 vols. 8°. 

Retana {Aparato hihl., \i, p. 766) says that this is one of the best works for the study of 
Philippine bibliography. It contains many references to Philippine titles, and many ex- 
tracts and old documents, etc. We have used it extensively in the annotation of our series. 
As first written by Ferrando, it contained the Dominican history of the Philippines until 
1840. His unpublished work was reedited by Fonseca, who added an appendix bringing 
the work down to date. 

Fernandez de Castro, Manuel : — Notas para un estudio bibliografico 
sobre los origenes y estado actual del mapa geologico de Espana. Ma- 
drid: Imprenta y fundicion de Manuel Tello, 1874. Pp. viii, 164. In- 
dices. 8°. 

There are various references to Phihppine titles (see pp. 47, 78, 90, 98, no, 129, 1301 
138, 142, 143). The author was inspector-general of the corps of mining engineers, and 
director of the Comision del mapa geologico. This book is reprinted from the Bulletin 
of the Comision del mapa geologico de Espaiia. 

Mallada, Lucas: — Sinopsis de las especies fosiles que se han encontrado 
en Espaiia (i^ parte). Madrid: 1875. 

In Boletin de la Comision del mapa geologico de Espana, ii-xviii. The introduction 
(ii, pp. 1-12) gives a bibliographical review of publications relating to the palaeontology 
of Spain, 1 754-1 874, which contains references to the Philippines. Cited by Josephson, 
and index of periodical. There are many articles on the Philippines in this periodical. 

Del-Pan, Felipe : — [Lists of Philippine titles.] 

Published in Revista de Filipinas, a Manila newspaper, of which Del-Pan was the founder 
and director, and which was published from July i, 1875 to June, 1877. Retana calls 
this the best newspaper of the Philippines because of its scientific value (Vindefs Catdlogo, 
iv, no. 221). Del-Pan's bibliographical work, Retana {Catdlogo, pp. vii, viiij and Apara- 
to bibl., i, p. iii) criticises harshly, however, saying that not a single title is stated definitely, 
and that it is poor in items; although some of the comments are good. Viewed from the 
standpoint of use, and not merely of exact bibliography, it is to be feared that Retana *s 
observations, as is so often the case, are too sweeping.

88 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

In Revista Augustiniana (today La Ciudad de Dios), and begun with the first issue of 
January 5, 1881, and not yet concluded (see Retana, Aparato hihL, ii, p. 919). From the 
forms of the periodical a few copies have been made into two toIs., i, containing the letters 
A- J., and ii, LI-Z, with a supplement. L is lacking. Vol. i contains only titles of works 
and is printed on but one side of the paper; ii contains biographies and critical notes as 
well as titles, and is printed on both sides. Retana says the work is rery useful. There 
are naturally many Philippine titles. Moral is still at work on this subject, and, accord- 
ing to Retana, will probably soon publish his work in definitive form.

volume is to bear the title Avisos y projecias, and only 400 copies will be printed. This 
was published under the principal title Cuestiones filipinos (Madrid, 1892). See Pardo

y el grabado en Filipinas. Madrid: tipografia de los hijos de M. G. 

Hernandez, 1893. Pp. 48. 8°. 

Comparatively few titles are given, but the pamphlet contains interesting information 
regarding the so-called rice paper of the Chinese, which is made from a plant called in 
the vernacular kotzu; the printing establishments of the Dominicans, Jesuits, Franciscans, 
of the seminary of the archbishopric, other establishments in and about Manila, and those 
of the provinces; and some few notes regarding engravers and engraving. The author 
is in error in regard to the earliest printing in Manila. This was published in Revista 
ContempordneOf beginning with Aug. 30, 1893. Retana {Aparato bibliogrdfico)y says that 
it does not contain one sure statement in regard to the origin of printing in the Philippines. 
Medina, Imprenta en Manila^ p. Ixxv, says that it is "not a bibliography, but a review 
of Philippine printed books and engravings, . . and so considered is quite excellent, 
although, in fact, far from completeness and thorough accuracy."

Pp. [xix]-iii consist of a **Verzeichniss von Semper *s Schriften," many of which are 
Philippine titles. The monograph Carl Sempery published by Shuberg at Wiesbaden in 
1893 (pp. iiviii, 8°) is probably identical with the above. Semper was one of the greatest 
of the few scientists who have written on the Philippines. To him is due the series known 
as Reisen in den Philippinen (still being published) of which he wrote the first volume 
(Leipzig, 1868) of 11 Theil (the first part was never published as a separate, and may be 
found in Zeitschrift fur wissenschajtliche Zoologie, and in other periodicals). For notices 
of this series, see Griffin's List of books on the Phil. Islands (Washington, 1903), and 
Retana's Aparato hihliogrdfco (1906). Of value also to the ethnologist is Semper 's Die 
Philippinen und ihre Bewohner (Wiirzburg, 1869).

despatches announcing the treaty of peace with England and instructions for the evacua- 
tion of the British troops. Retana says {Bihl. filipina, 1898, p. 436), that a reading of 
this book will convince one that the Jesuits acted as true patriots during this period.

secular priests executed in 1872; and in succeeding parts, statements by various secular 
priests arrested during the first Tagalog revolution of 1896-97; two documents regarding 
the episcopal visit by Sancho de Santa Justa y Rufina, etc. The author of the book (a 
European Spaniard and formerly a member of the Augustinian order) seeks to defend 
the Filipino secular clergy from their detractors, one of whom is W. E. Retana. The 
latter (Aparato bibl., iii, p. 1425) damns this book with faint praise, but it is of great use 
and well worth study.

work." It is very inadequate, the author contenting himself for the most part by simply 
giving author and title without date or place of publication. Sawyer's book is not author- 
itative for things that he did not know personally, and contains many errors.

The author has made use of Cano's Catalogo^ but has added very materially to the in- 
formation of that book. In his bibliographies, Perez has adopted the chronological order. 
The bibliographical information is given in the biography. This is a valuable contribution 
to the bibliography of the Philippines. In the body of his work, Perez gives his own 
biography under the name of "Elviro Jorde"" instead of **" Perez," so that his full name is 
rightly ''Elviro Jorde Perez.""

Yriarte, Manuel de ; and Miranda, Manuel de : — Reports of Bureau

These arc published in the Reports of the Philippine Commissiony as follows: 1902, 
part 2, appendix D, pp. 1039-1044 (dated Manila, Oct. 25, 1902); shows the classification 
of documents adopted. 1903, part 3, exhibit D, pp. 956-961 (dated Manila, Sept. 14, 
1903); gives note of various subjects on which information was furnished. 1904, part 3, 
exhibit D, pp. 954-960 (this report is by acting chief of bureau, Manuel M. Miranda, and 
is dated Sept. 13, 1904). 1905, part 4, exhibit D, pp. 633-637 (dated Manila, August 15, 
1905); like the two preceding reports, there is also a note of the subjects on which infor- 
mation was furnished during the year. This bureau was made a division of the Execu- 
tive Bureau, Nov. i, 1905. See Report of Commission for 1906, i, pp. 79, 97, 134, 135. 
This division is of archives, patents, copyrights, trademarks, and cattle brands. The 
reports of the Philippine Commission contain other information concerning this depart- 
ment which may best be obtained from the volumes themselves. 

Bureau of Insular Affairs (War Department) : — A pronouncing gazet- 
teer and geographical dictionary of the Philippine Islands. Washington :

Pp. 172-175 are entitled "Philippine Bibliography. A selected list of books by best 
authorities." This is short and inadequate. The gazetteer was hastily compiled, and 
contains many errors. It has been completely revised and copy is ready for a second 
edition. However, to be of the greatest use, its scope should be considerably broadened, 
and there should be more expert compilation, and less of the office.

Chao Ju-Kua (Chinese geographer) : — [Description of the Philippines.] 
[Ca., 1280.] 

Retranslated into English from Blumentritt's translation into Spanish from the English 
of Dr. Hirth (ca.^ 1891); the Spanish version being published in the Filipino paper Perio- 
dico Hehdomadario Escolarioi November 9, 1901. This is an extract from the geograph- 
ical work of the above author, who was a Chinese official stationed in the south of the Chi- 
nese empire about the middle of the thirteenth century. It is of special interest as being 
the earliest known record of the Philippines, and was written about one and one-half cen- 
turies before Magalhaes'^s discovery. It shows that the Chinese had a well-established 
trade among the islands at this early time, and it may almost safely be assumed that they 
had had such intercourse for centuries. Vol. xxxiv, pp. 183-191 (see especially pp. 
183.185). 

Alexander VI : — [Bull {Inter ccBtera) granting lands newly discovered, or 

to be discovered, to Spain.] Rome, May 3, 1493. 

This is the first bull of the above date, for particulars of which, see vol. i, pp. 339-341. 
We translate from the version published in Heywood's Documenta selecta et tahulario 
secreto Vaticano (Roma, 1893), where the facsimile of the bull is also given. This bull 
has been published in many collections, etc. (see ut supray pp. 339, 340). There are two 
manuscripts in existence: one in the Vatican; and one (written on paper) in A. de I.;

[Bull {EximicB) granting to Spain the same rights formerly granted to 

Portugal in its African discoveries.] Rome, May 3, 1493. 

The second bull of this date, for particulars of which see vol. i, pp. 339-341. We 
translate from Heywood, ut supra, pp. 21, 22. Published also in various other works {ut 
supra). Manuscript copies exist as follows: one in the Vatican; and one in A. de I. (ut 
supra)y which was copied in 1505. Vol. i, pp. 103-105. 

[Bull (Inter ccetera) establishing the line of demarcation.] Rome, May 

4, 1493- 

This bull supersedes the two preceding bulls. We translate from Heywood, ut supra. 
For bibliographical details, see vol. i, pp. 339-341 (for published versions, pp. 339, 340). 
Manuscript copies exist as follows: one in the Vatican; one in Lisbon - Torre do Tombo,

and one in B. M. (a Spanish translation) - papeles varios de Indias, add. 13, 977. Vicente 
Llorens Asensio {La primera vuelta d mundo, Sevilla, 1903, pp. 91, 92) says that this 
bull was always considered in the indices of the Archive de Indias as a copy of the first bull 
of 1493. Vol. I, pp. 105-11 1.

[Bull extending the apostolic grant and donation of the Indies.] Rome, 
September 25, 1493. 

For bibliographical details of this bull, see vol. i, pp. 340, 341. We translate from the 
Spanish version given by Navarrete, Coleccidn de viages (1825), ii, pp. 404-406; (1859), 
ii, pp. 449-451. This bull has been known only through the Spanish translation, made 
by Gracian de Aldretc, secretary of Felipe II of Spain, and Harrisse^s search in the ar- 
chives at Simancas, Sevilla, and Rome failed to discover any other copy. However, 
Llorens Asensio {ut supra, p. 92) says that there are two copies of the bull in A. de I., to 
which he gives the following title; " 'Nudum Siquidem omnes et singulas Insulam' aclaran- 
do y ampliando lo concedido a los Reyes Cat61icos por la de 4 de Mayo del mismo ano, 
de lo que se descubra en Indias." Both of the copies seem to be written on parchment, 
and are accompanied by the leaden seal. Llorens Asensio adds also that Navarrete 
assigned the date Sept. 25 in place of Sept. 26 to this bull. Vol. i, pp. 111-114.

ments, see VOL. I, p. 343; and Llorens Asensio, La primera vuelta d mundo (Sevilla, 
1903), pp. 93-107 (who enumerates documents not given by Navarrete). See also Mon-

Ihaes and Falero. Vol. i, pp. 249-270 (being a mere synopsis, with a few direct citations). 
In the Lenox branch of the New York Public Library (Spanish-American collection; 
coleccion de viages) is the transcript of a MS. purporting to be by Magalhaes, which was 
written about 1515. It is entitled "Descripcion De los Reynos, costas, Puertos, e Yslas 
que hayen el Mar de la Yndia oriental desde el cabo de Buena Esperanza hasta la China: 
de los usos y costumbres de sus naturales, su Gobierno, Religion, comercio, y navega- 
cion, y de los frutos y efectos que producen aquella[s] vastas Regiones, con otras noticias 
muy curiosas. Compuesto por . . Piloto Portugues que lo vio y anduvo todo." Begins 
"Este libro compuso Fernando Magallanes Portugues Piloto lo qual el vio y anduvo. 
Primeramentc El Cabo de San Sebastian. . ." Ends "por quanto no vinieron a Malaca 
desp^ que es de nuestro Rey = A Dios gracias = ." Notwithstanding the beginning of this 
document, it is quite probable that Magalhaes was not its author; and it is conjectured 
that Duarte Barbosa may have written it (see Stanley's translation of his Relation, East 
African and Malabar coasts (London, 1876; Hakluyt ed.).

There is a manuscript copy of the Itinerary in Lenox Branch of N. Y. Public Library, in 
a vol. entitled Coleccion de viages. In his Aparato hihl. (i, p. 130), Retana gives a list of 
all the editions, which number 48 (one being an extract from the English Parke ed.), 
and comprise editions in Spanish, Italian, Latin, English, French, German, and Dutch, 
some of which are classed as doubtful; and of which the C. G. de T. de F. possesses 27 
editions, which are described. For bibliography in regard to this interesting book, sec

With this letter is enclosed a relation by Salazar and others on the population of Manila 
and Luzon provinces, a description of the same, and an account of the tributes, etc. This 
relation is divided into two parts, the first part, dated Dec. 31, 1586, and made by the 
Manila cabildo; and the second part being added by Salazar under date of June 25, 1585 
(probably a printer's error for 1588). There is also some notarial matter. We translate 
from the document as pubhshed in Cartas de Indias (Madrid, 1877), pp. 637-652. Vol. 
VII, pp. 29-51. 

Plasencia, Juan de, O. S. F.: — [Customs of the Tagalogs.] Nagcarlan, 

October 21, 1589. 

In Santa Ines's Cronica^ ii, pp. 592-603 (in appendix 3). This consists of two parts: 
the first under the above title, and bearing date as above; the second bearing title "Rela- 
tion of the worship of the Tagalogs, their Gods, and their burials and superstitions," and 
undated. Inserted by Antonio de Padua {or de la Llavc), a Franciscan missionary in the 
Philippines, 1 591-1645, and the first chronicler of his order in the Philippines, in his 
Cronica de la santa y apostolica provincia de San Gregorio (see post^ It was discovered 
in that MS. by the editor of Santa In^s's Cronica (Manila, 1892), who announced his 
find in the supplement of the Oceania espanola, for June 6, 1886; and published the 
document in the above book, ii, appendix 3, pp. 592-598. This MS. was prepared by 
Plasencia at the request of Governor Santiago de Vera (made through the Franciscan 
provincial, San Pedro Bautista) in order that the alcaldes-mayor might have some 
standard by which to administer justice to the natives. This code was used in the legis- 
lation for the natives until the changing conditions of Filipino society rendered it inopera- 
tive. For many years it was supposed to have been lost until discovered as above related. 
Its appearance in the body of the acts of the Audiencia (for 1 598-1599, where we found a 
manuscript copy of it) indicates that it was discussed by that body in 1599. This is also 
published in Patemo's Barangay (Madrid, 1892), pp. 1-85. Paterno alleged that he 
published from a MS. in his library, but Pardo de Tavera (Bibl. fil., p. 302, no. 1941) 
states that Paterno simply copied the relation as published by himself in the Revista con- 
tempordnea for April, 1892. Vol. vii, pp. 173-196. See also, post^ p. 163.

The earliest printed ecclesiastical history treating entirely of the Philippines, and the 
earliest to print Filipino written characters. Some have contended that this book was 
printed later than 1620, an error that has arisen in part from the later MS. left by Chirino 
(see posty p. 283), and partly from the mention of Morga's Sucesos by Chirino. But it 
must be remembered that Morgans book circulated in MS. before being published. This 
work is of great importance as it is one of the earliest accounts of the peoples of the Philip- 
pines, and is full of keen observation. Vindel, Catdlogo, iii, p. 180, says that but 200 
copies were printed. Chirino was the first Jesuit to go to the Philippines (1590) at the 
king's expense. In 1602 he went to Rome on business for the order, where he published 
his book, returning to the islands July 7, 1606. He afterward taught in the College of San 
Jos6, and died at Manila, September 16, 1635, at the age of 60. See Pardo de Tavera, 
Bibl. fil.y p. 126; and Retana, Aparato bibl., i, pp. 48-52 (where the Tagalog characters are 
reproduced, and some extracts made from the work). Published in English translation in 
our VOLS. XII and xiii. A reprint (containing many printers'* errors, and altogether inade- 
quate), was published at Manila, Imprenta de E. Balbas, 1890. Copies of the rare orig- 
inal edition exist in the following libraries and collections: P. de T. (Manila; formerly 
belonged to Semper); B. N. (Madrid); R. A. de la H. (Madrid); M. B. de U. (Madrid);

Written in a charming style, although the work contains many inaccuracies. The 
author had access to all the documents of the archives. A reprint was issued in ""^Zara- 
goza: Imprenta del Hospicio Provincial, 1891," in a 4° of pp. clxiii, 407, (2), with a study 
on Leonardo de Argensola by Father Miguel Mir. The original has been translated into 
French (Amsterdam, 1706, 3 vols., 12°; and Amsterdam, 1707, a different setting than that 
of the preceding year); English (London, 1708; by Capt. John Stevens; another edition, 
171 1); and German (Franckfurth and Leipzig, 1710 — translated from the French ed. 
of 1706). The French editions contain much more matter than the original, as they are 
considerably annotated. See Retana's Aparato bibL; Pardo de Tavera's Bibl. fl., p. 
34; and GriflBn's List, p. 23. The greater part of the volume treats of the Moluccas, and 
gives much of the early history of those islands. Considerable space is, however, devoted 
to the Philippines, namely, after p. 163, although there is also some Philippine matter 
preceding this. In our series, we have translated and synopsized the Philippine matter. 
Vol. XVI, pp. 217-317 (with facsimile of title-page). Copies of the original are conserved 
in the following libraries: P. de T. (Manila; bought from Quaritch); R. A. de la H. 
(Madrid); C. G. de T. de F. (Barcelona); A. de I. (Sevilla); B. N. (Paris); B. M. (Lon- 
don; 3 copies); Harvard; B. P. (Boston); Lenox; H, S. of A. (N. Y.); N. Y. State (Al-

MoRGA, Dr. Antonio de : — Svcesos de las Islas Filipinas. Dirigido a 

Don Cristoval Gomez de Sandoual y Rojas, Duque de Cea. Mexico: 

En cafa de Geronymo Balli, 1609. Leaves (6), 172. 4°. 

Some volumes have an engraved title-page with the following title: "Svcesos de las 
Islas Philipinas dirigidos a Don Christoval Gomez de Sandoval y Rojas Dvqve de Cea. 
Mexici ad Indos: 1609." Some volumes may have borne both title-pages, though we 
have not seen them; or there may have been a reissue of the volume, with the changed 
title-page; in other respects the volumes are the same. This is the first secular history 
devoted to the Philippines, and is one of the best ever written. Morga had a high idea of 
the early civilization of the Filipinos; and writes with the assurance of one who had made 
a close study of his subject. The MS. of this work was dated 1607 and bore the following 
title: "Descubrimiento, conquista, pacificacion y poblacion de las Islas Philipinas," and 
was dedicated "A la Magestad Catholica del Rey Don Phelipe III, nuestro Senor," as is 
mentioned by Torrubia, both title and dedication being changed in the printed edition. 
Chirino also {Relacion, 1604), mentions the work (at least the eighth chapter), so that it 
must have been written at least in part before 1604. It was edited and reprinted by Rizal, 
with the following title-page: 

Sucesos de las Islas Filipinas por el Doctor Antonio de Morga. Obra publicado en 
Mdjico el ano de 1609 nuevamentc sacada a luz y anotada por Jos^ Rizal y precedida de 
un pr61ogo del Prof. Fernando Blumentritt. Paris: Libreria de Gamier Hermanos, 1890. 
Pp. xxxvi, (2), 374. 80. 

Unfortunately the transcript which was made for Rizal from the copy of the original 
conserved in the British Museum was hastily made, and in consequence is not thoroughly 
accurate. This work and RizaFs annotations are a protest against the frequently- 
expressed contempt of the Spaniards for the Filipinos; and while Rizal tried, perhaps, to

prove too much, the work was timely, and brought into more general notice a book that 
well merited study. One Justo Zaragoza, shortly before Rizal, began to reprint Morga's 
book, but he died before the completion of his task. The book was reprinted, but the notes, 
prologue and life of Morga, which Zaragoza intended to insert, were never finished. Some 
time after his death, the sheets were sold as wrapping paper. So far as known, but two 
copies of this edition (which bears date Madrid, 1887) were bound, one of which belongs to 
the C. G. de T. de F., and one to the Ayer Collection (see Vindel's Catdiogo, iii, pp. 199, 
200; and Retana's Aparato hibl.). An English translation was made by Sir Henry Ed- 
ward John Stanley, with the following title: 

The Philippine Islands, Moluccas, Siam, Cambodia, Japan, and China, at the close of 
the sixteenth century. By Antonio de Morga. Translated from the Spanish, with notes 
and a preface, and a letter from Luis Vaez de Torres, describing his voyage through the 
Torres Straits, by the Hon. Henry E. J. Stanley. London : Printed for the Hakluyt Society, 
1868. Pp. xxiv, 431. Portrait. Index. 8°. 

The translation is poor, and Stanley has omitted the translation of the broad passages. 
We have used the annotations of both Rizal and Stanley in our translation. Morgans 
work, which is scarce and commands a high price, is very valuable for a study of ethnology, 
and conditions among the Filipinos during the early Spanish regime. Morga, it must be 
remembered, was a high official in the colony, and had access to all the documents in the 
archives of the islands, and was in addition a keen observer. See Pardo de Tavera, 
Bibl. fl.y pp. 275-277; and Retana, CatalogOy pp. 6, 7; and vol. xv, pp. 34-36, notes 2 
and 3, and pp. 31-287; and vol. xvi, pp. 27-209 (the title-pages are reproduced in fac- 
simile). Editions of the original are found in the following libraries and collections: 
B. N. (Madrid); R. A. de la H. (Madrid); M. B. de U. (Madrid; a manuscript copy); 
B. R. (Madrid); C. G. de T. de F. (Barcelona); University of Granada; B. M. (Lon- 
don; 2 copies); Harvard (pen and ink title-page); J. C. B. (Providence); Lenox; Ayer.

hurriedly and carelessly. Its source is not evident, and an earlier MS. may have been 
utilized, or the printed copy. Its title is as follows: "Memorial informatorio al Rey nfo

as known, is in existence, although the title is listed by some of the old bibliographers. 
Thevenot^s toIs. (in their various editions) are by no means uncommon in collections. Per- 
haps the Thevenots of John Carter Brown library are as notable as any, and it is only to 
be regretted that the insertion of title-pages has spoiled the books so far as their distinct 
bibliographical value is concerned. Vol. xxix, pp. 66-85. Thevenot's translation is 
not entirely accurate, it is to be feared, and it appears that he has adapted and summa- 
rized in places.

says {Aparato bibl., i, p. 179) that it can be safely assumed that the author of this rela- 
tion was a Spanish Jesuit, who wrote in 1640. Pablo Pastells, S. J., conjectures that the 
author must be Diego Bobadilla, S. J. Thevenot translated from a Spanish MS. in the 
collection of Don Carlo del Pezzo. This is a valuable relation, and contains ethnological 
material, and a reproduction of a Filipino alphabet. Retana, ut supra, pp. 179-180,

This is called the first part of the history of the Jesuits in the Philippines and was pre- 
pared in large part from the manuscripts left by Chirino (see post, p. 283). The work 
is divided into the following books: I. Descripcion gcographica, y historica de las Islas 
Filipinas. II. Del primer estado desta prouincia, en que fue solamente mission, casa 
de residencia, y colegio. III. Del tiempo qve esta fve vice-prouincia subordinada a la de 
Mexico. IIII. De lo svcedido en los diez afios primeros, despues que esta fue promouida 
en prouincia. His history does not extend beyond the year 1632. A reprint was begun 
in Manila in 1890, but was never completed (see Retana, Catdlogo abreviado, p. 9). This 
book contains considerable bibliographical information, as Colin has published in con- 
densed form various letters written by Jesuits. Colin 's work was republished by Pablo 
Pastells, S. J., of the Jesuit college of Sarria, Barcelona, as follows: 

Labor evangelica de los obreros de la Compania de Jesus en las Islas Filipinas por el P. 
Francisco Colin de la misma Compania. Nueva edicion ilustrada con copia de notas y 
documentos para la critica de la historia general de la soberania de Espana en Filipinas. 
Barcelona'. Imprenta y litografia de Henrich y Compania. 3 vols. 4°. 

These volumes are most copiously annotated with original MSS. drawn from the Ar- 
chivo general de Indias, and other documents, which make them a most valuable source 
for the history of the Jesuits in the Philippines. In addition the editor used extensively 
Chirino's unpublished MS. {q.v., p. 283). A German translation of most of the first 
book of the original edition was published in the Neue Welt-Bott, iv, theil xxvi, by Joseph 
Kropff, S. J., in 1748, under the following title: " Beschreibung deren Philippinischen 
Inseln." This translation is accompanied by a map. Theil xxvii contains in transla- 
tion the list of Jesuit houses, churches, etc. (pp. 811-820 in the original edition). In our 
series we have published the following extracts from the original: "Jesuit missions in 1656; 
List of the number of religious, colleges, houses, and residences of the province of the 
Society of Jesus; and of the churches, districts, and missions of Indians administered 
in these Filipinas Islands, this present year, M. DC. LVI;" pp. 811-820. Vol. xxviii, pp. 
78-103 (in the religious appendix). "Native races and their customs;" book i, chaps, iv,

educational appendix). Retana (Aparato bibl., i, pp. 134-138) also gives some brief extracts 
from the original edition. In addition to the documents which we have used from Pas- 
tells 's edition, we have, among others, used the following notes as annotation for our 
series: Vol. xxi, p. 32, note i, in iii, pp. 674-677; p. 33, note 4, in iii, p. 677; pp.

I20 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

Letona, Bartholome de, O. S. F.: — Prologo, y descripcion de Filipinas. 
Pueblo de los Angeles: 1662. 

Bound with Letona's Perfecta religiosa (Puebla de los Angeles, En la oficina de la viuda 
de Juan de Borja, y Candia, 1662). Consists of 35 unnumbered pages. On the flyleaf 
of the copy of Perfecta religiosa from which our transcript was made (in the possession of 
Antonio Graino, of Madrid), is written: ""A very rare work, especially with the description 
of Filipinas, because the Council of the Indias ordered it torn from the copies. It has been 
said that the Inquisition ordered this work collected and suppressed. I think that this 
is an error, and that this work has been confused with another work with a similar title; 
and the work prohibited by the Inquisition is that written by the Jesuit, Ramos.'*'' This 
copy bears the bookplate of Doctor N. Leon. Cited by Huerta, Estadoy p. 511, and Mar- 
cellino da Civezza, Saggio di bibl., pp. 315, 316. Vol. xxxvi, pp. 189-217. Letona went 
to the Philippines in 1649; and returned to Mexico in 1654. He left some devotional 
writings.

The first volume of the general history of the Recollect order (see also post^ Jesus, Luis de; 
Santa Theresa, Diego de; and San Francisco de Assis, Pedro de). The portions treating 
of the Philippines are found on pp. 99-101, 396-402, 412-429, 432-457, 459-465, 469, 470, 
475, 476, 505-507, 509-511, 529 (the bibliography of the Library of Congress being slightly 
at error on this point). In our vol. xxi, pp. 111-185, we have translated the parts relat- 
ing to the Philippines under the following title: "Early Recollect missions in the Philip- 
pines, 1 606- 1 624.'''' Copies are owned by L. of C; and Ayer.

¥0. 

This is even yet one of the most important books ever written about Mindanao and ad- 
jacent islands. It contains descriptions of the islands, their products, peoples, and history. 
It was edited with a lengthy prologo^ notes, and various tables, by W. E. Retana, with the 
collaboration of Pablo Pastells, S. J., under the following title: "Historia de Mindanao

viuda de M. Minuesa de los Rios], 1897; ¥°. 

While the actual wording of the text has been respected, accents and punctuation have 
been introduced. From this we have translated the following in our series: ""The natives 
of the southern islands^' book i, chaps, ix-xviii (Retana and Pastells's ed.). "Vol. xl, pp. 
99-182 (in ethnological appendix). Copies of the original edition are found in the follow-

nos, y diferentes navegaciones. Madrid: En la imprenta real, 1676. 
Pp. (20), 518, 25. Fo. 

Dedicated to Don Juan de Austria. It is written in a somewhat gossipy style, and 
contains matters of considerable value not elsewhere found. While treating especially of 
China, some space is given to the Philippines, in particular book vi, chaps, iii-vii, xxxi, 
and irrii. In chap, rai, "Adiciones breves a estos tratados" is a criticism of the work 
of Francisco Colin (see Pardo de Tavera, Bihl. fil.y p. i68, no. 1068). It was probably in 
answer to this and to the treatment of the Chinese missions, that the following polemical 
works were published, in all probability by Jesuits: "Memorial apologetico el exc^° Senor 
Condc de Villa-Humbrosa . . de parte de los missioneros apostolicos de el imperio de la 
China. Representando los reparos que se hazen en un libro que se ha publicado en Madrid 
este ano de 1676 en grave perjuizio de aquelia mission (Madrid, 1676 ?)." *' Reparos his- 
toriales apologeticos . . propuestos de parte de los missioneros apostolicos del imperio 
de la China representando los descuidos, que se cometen en un libro que se ha publicado 
en Madrid, en grave perjuizio de aquelia mission." This latter Retana (fiatdlogo, p. 10, 
no. 18) says was published at Tarragona, but the British Museum catalogue suggests Pam- 
plona, in 1677. This, Retana says {ut supra) probably delayed the publication of the second 
part of the Tratados, which finally appeared in 1679. Fernandez de Navarrete was probably 
in Manila from 1 648-1 656 (see Griffin's List, p. 119). There is an English translation which 
is published in the various editions of ChurchilFs Collection of Voyages — 1732, 1744, ^^^

is well preserved.

1683. 4 leaves. F^. 

In Retana, ArchivOy i, no. 4. Retana transcribed from the copy of the original pamphlet 
conserved in Madrid; M. B. de U. There is a transcript of the original pamphlet in the 
Ventura del Arco MSS. {q.v., iii, no. 7). This forms part of the famous Pardo contro- 
versy. Vol. XXXIX, pp. 149-175. 

Morales, Luis de, S. J.: — [Events of the Marianas missions, 1681-1684.] 

[Madrid, 1685?] Begins "Senor Lvis De Morales, Procurador de la 

Compaiiia . . ." Ends "esperan en todo recibir merced.*' 

This pamphlet contains the "Relacion de el Estado, y Progressos de la Mission de las 
Yslas Marianas desde Junio passado de 81. hasta el de 82," which was written in the 
letter-report of Manuel de Solorf ano, S. J., vice-provincial and superior of the Marianas 
missions; and ''Relacion de la Mission de Marianas desde el lunio passado de 82. hasta 25 
de Abril presente de 84." by the same. Pardo de Tavera (Bihlioteca jUipina^ p. 274, no. 
1768) cites this second report as a separate publication, which (following Vidal y Soler), 
he describes as consisting of four folios, signed ''Luis de Morales procurador de la Com- 
paiiia de Jesus.'' It is likely that the mistake arose through these two reports being cited 
separately (see Sommervogel, v, col. 1283), who, however, describes the two relations as 
part of the same publication, as consisting of a folio pamphlet of four leaves. In no. 1769, 
Pardo de Tavera describes the entire relation with its two reports, which evidently exists 
in his own library. It has been translated by Le Gobien, in his Histoire des ties Marianes 
(Paris, 1700), under the title "Memoire du Pere Louis de Morales touchant la situacion, 
la distance et la grandeur des Isles Marianes." As Morales went to Spain in 1685 as 
procurator for the missions, the date of the pamphlet can be fixed at approximately 1685. 
Our transcript is made from the copy in R. A. de la H.; papeles de Jesuitas; tomo 19, 
no. 25.

Mvega, 1698. Pp. (32), 544, (7). Engraving. Index, po. 

One of the most celebrated of all early accounts. Ends with the year 161 6. The 
Conquistas de las Islas Filipinas, prepared by Casimiro Diaz, and known as the second part 
of the above history, was prepared in great part from materials gathered by San Augustin. 
It was never published until 1890 (Valladolid) under the editorship of Tirso Lopez, O. S. A. 
Copies of San Augustin's work are owned by P. de T. (Manila)j M. B. de U. (Madrid); 
R. A. de la H. (Madrid); C. G. de T. de F.; Biblioteca provincial (Toledo); Colegio de 
Agustinos (Valladolid); Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A. (Valladolid); B. M. (London); 
B. P. (Boston); Lenox; Astor (N. Y.); L. of C; Ayer; and Biblioteca Nacional de 
Santiago (Chile). San Augustin wrote a Confessionario in Spanish and Tagal, "for the 
direction of the confessors and the instruction of the penitents."' It was published at Sam- 
paloc, in 1787. ("Presentanse en el cuestiones en extremo peregrinas, particularmente 
en las preguntas que el confesor hace a los indios sobre los mandamientos sexto y noveno.'*

Pp. (24), 433, (12). Two folded maps. 160. 

The author claims that he has used only materials contained in the letters and rela- 
tions of missionaries sent him from Rome, Spain, and the Netherlands. Much of it is 
a translation of Garcia's Vida y martyrio . . de Diego Luis de Sanvitores (Madrid, 
1683). Book ii of the 2d ed. of Le Gobien 's work (also Paris, 1700) was published in 
Spanish translation in Delgado's Historia general (Manila, 1892). Eduardo Navarro, 
O. S. A., of Valladolid, claims that Le Gobien is not accurate in all essentials. See Griffin's 
Listy p. 143. Copies of this work are owned by P. de T. (Manila); C. G. de T. de F.;

This memorial purports to be by the representatives of the five orders of the Dominicans, 
Franciscans, Augustinians, Recollects, and Jesuits. However, Berart, in a letter of April 
4, 1700, says: *'I wrote the memorial which Lector Mimbela printed under his name," 
(see Resena biog., ii, p. 203). Mimbela is the first person mentioned in the memorial as 
representing the Dominicans.

of the Ladrones, Mindanao, and other PhiHppine and East India Islands 

near Cambodia, China, Formosa, Luconia, Celebes, &c. New Holland, 

Sumatra, Nicobar, Isles; the Cape of Good Hope, and Santa Helena. 

Their soil, rivers, harbours, plants, fruits, animals, and inhabitants. 

Their custom, religion, government, trade, &c. London: Printed for 

James Knapton, 1703. Maps. Plates. 4 vols. 8°. 

This is the fifth edition. The first edition was published for James ELnapton at London 
in 1697. For bibliographical information concerning Dampier's work, see Sabin, Biblio- 
iheca Americanay t, pp. 188-195. There have been over seven Enghsh editions (the seventh 
being considered the best, although it contains much matter that is not Dampier's - see 
VOL. xxxviii, p. 241, note 114); and editions have also been published in French, Dutch, 
and German. Dampier's MS. is conserved in London; B. M. (see /)05/, p. 3 1 1 ). We 
reprint the portions treating of the Philippines. Vol. xxxviii, pp. 240-285, and vol.

An exceedingly rare book. Retana {Estadismo, ii, p. *I4) was able to find a copy only 
at the Augustinian convent at Valladolid (in the possession of Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A.). 
It contains important matter on the heathen practices of the natives. Retana reproduces 
parts of the most important matter {Estadismo, ii, pp. *i4-*2i), which we have translated, 
viz., part of chap, i, section iv, pp. 11-15, under the title *' Superstitions and beliefs of the 
Filipinos," and which forms a part of the ethnological appendix. Vol. xliii, pp. 103-112.

A most important book for the study of the commercial relations between the Philippines 
and Nueva Espana and Spain. Diyided into ten tiempos or periods. On folios 215-264 
is inserted the famous memorial of Grau y Monfalcon (see vol. xxvh, pp. 55-212); and 
on folios 3-15, the "" Justificaci6n de la conservacion y comercio de las islas Philipinas," 
of the same author (see vol. xxx, pp. 25-109). Of this book only 100 copies are declared 
to have been printed. For bibliographical details, see Pardo de Tavera, Bihl. fii.y p. 164, 
no. 1044; Griffin's Listy p. 7; and Retana's CatdJogo, p. 16, and Aparato bihl. We have 
published this as follows in our series in translation and synopsis: "Commerce between 
the Philippines and Nueva Espana'"" (1593-1635), fol. 1-28; the first two periods. Vol. 
xxx, pp. 23-109 (facsimile of title-page on p. 21). "Commerce of the Phihppines with

See Retana's full description of this work in his Aparato hihliogrd-ficoy i, pp. 291-296; and 
that of Pardo de Tavera, in his Biblioteca fiJipina. The first volume is the most important 
and furnishes much practical information regarding the islands. The work contains also 
some bibliographical notes (see the lives of the various Franciscan friars). Considerable 
use seems to have been made of San Antonio by Juan Delgado, S. J., in his Historic 
(Manila, 1892). See Medina, Imprenta, no. 202, in re a surreptitious edition of vol. ii 
of the Chronicas. The imprint on this vol. is "Convento de Nuestra Senora de Loreto del 
Pueblo de Sampaloc, 1741."" Vindel, however, believes it should be Madrid, 1743. The 
first and third vols, of such an edition have not yet been discovered. We have published 
in addition to many notes from San Antonio, the following extracts (mainly in direct trans- 
lation): *'The religious estate in the Philippines;" book i, pp. 172-175, 190-210, 214-216, 
219, 220, 223-226, comprising chaps, xlvii (in part), xlviii-li, liii, Iv, Ivi (in part), Ivii, Iviii-

(London); Harvard; Ubaldus Pandolfi, O. S. F. (Boston); Astor (N. Y.); Ayer. There 
was formerly a copy in the library of Alphonse Pinart (see his Catalogue, Paris, 1883, no. 
1298).

En la Imprenta de D. Agustin de Gordejuela y Sierra, 1753. 2d ed. 
Pp. (48), 115. 32°. 

The Franciscan Tornibia wrote, in defense of the Jesuit missions in Mindanao and the 
maintenance of the Zamboanga fort, in 1736 (for title of which, see Retana and Griffin), 
a memorial, which was printed (a very few copies) for circulation in the Spanish court; 
it eulogized the services of F. Valdes Tamon. When the latter's son was at Madrid 
later, no copy of this memorial could be found; accordingly, Patricio Joseph CastcUanos 
secured permission (1753) to reprint it; he dedicated it to the son. (See the "Dedication" 
at the beginning, signed by Castellanos.) Tornibia describes the location, settlements, 
and importance of Mindanao, and its relation to the other Moro islands of J0I6, Borneo, 
etc. He relates the depredations of the Moro pirates, and shows how these have always 
been much greater when the Spaniards had no fort in Mindanao. He gives the history of 
Zamboanga fort and of expeditions sent against pirates. The origin and funds of Miseri- 
cordia are related, its obras pias, and its function as a Monte de piedad. In addition to 
various notes, we have translated in our series from the 1753 edition as follows: '''Events 
in Filipinas, 1721-39;" pp. 68-90; in synopsis and translation. Vol. xlvi, pp. 38-43 
(with a facsimile of the title-page on p. 41). See also vol. xlvii, pp. 119, 120, note 13.

This work is highly praised by Retana, Aparato bibl.y i, pp. 392, 393. Especially 
valuable for its description of Mindanao and its people, of whom (as likewise of the Pa- 
puans) Forrest gives a vocabulary. A Dublin edition was published in 1779; a French 
translation was published at Paris, in 1780; and a German translation at Hamburg, in 
1782 (the latter without the vocabularies). We have used this for various notes in our

The Philippine matter is contained in vol. ii, pp. 1-366 (except for a few scattered refer-

rect idea of conditions in the latter part of the eighteenth century, although it does contain 
some inaccuracies in regard to the social and political life (see Pardo de Tavera, Bibl. fil., 
p. 232, no. 1 510). Le Gentil was a trained scientific observer, and was sent out by the 
French government. His observations cover the dates Sept. 1766-Feb. i, 1768. He makes 
considerable use of San Antonio as an authority for his statements. We publish the follow-

unnumbered preliminary pages contain a chronological list of the conquistadors; a chrono-

Dominican province in the Philippines. See Pardo de Tavera, Bibl. jiL, p. 107; and 
Retana, Aparato bibl., i, pp. 401, 402. The latter gives a facsimile of the title-page. Co-

at Valladolid in 1764, and arrived at Manila July 8, 1769. He filled several posts in his 
order, among them that of provincial. He died as bishop of Nueva Caceres in 1808, at 
the age of 60. Copies of his book are found in the following libraries and collections: P.

of Chinese, Japanese, and other missions. Concepcion is one of the most impartial of the 
friar writers, and gives many interesting details of Philippine history. Martinez de Zufii- 
ga condensed much of his Historia from this work. Retana (Aparato bibl.y i, p. 419), 
says that a manuscript copy of Concepcion exists in Madrid, at the Biblioteca Nacional, 
with pressmark I, 312. It shows variations from the printed edition. Concepcion's 
style is not at all easy, and the work is wretchedly printed. Besides using this history 
largely for annotation throughout its period in our series, we have translated and synop- 
sized as follows: "Early Recollect missions in the Philippines, 1606-1624;" in iv, pp. 189-

Written, as the author states in his preface, so that readers might have the history of the 
Philippines in small compass. Previous histories, he says, have been very long, full of 
extraneous matter, and consequently not read. This is an excellent work and written in 
pleasing and readable style. See Barrows 's commentary on Martinez de Zuniga in his 
Hist, of the Phil.y p. 19. There is an English translation with title as follows:

The appearance of this book raised a storm in official circles. It treats especially of 
the industry, agriculture, commerce, finance, and administration of the Philippines in 
1 8 10. Retana (Aparato bibl.y ii, pp. 501, 502), praises it highly. The work was reissued 
in Manila, 1878, by Felipe Del-Pan (Las Islas Filipinas. Progresses en yo ahos\ the first 
218 pages being Comyn, and the remainder Del-Pan's notes and economic description of 
the islands in 1876. It was translated into English and edited by William Walton, under 
the title State of the Philippine Islands, being an historical, statistical, and descriptive ac- 
count of that interesting portion of the Indian archipelago (London, 1821). There is also 
a Dutch translation (see Vindel, Catdlogo, iv, p. 289). Comyn lived in Manila for eight 
years as chief factor of the Compania de Filipinas; and was an authority in financial, com- 
mercial, and economic matters. See also Griffin's List, p. 15; and Pardo de Tavera's

The first two vols, at least were issued in a second edition, in 1858 and 1859. Only 
vols, iv and v concern the Philippines. Many documents are published from copies of the 
original MSS. which makes this a very valuable collection. It is said that the family 
of the editor still possess unpublished notes sufficient to fill two more vols. See synopses 
of documents published in this collection in our vols, i and 11. The Philippine matter 
treats of the Magalhaes, Loaisa, Saavedra, Villalobos, and Legazpi expeditions. See also, 
ante, p. 71. See also Pardo de Tavera, Bibl. fl., p. 168, no. 1070. We have had frequent

Mas, Sinibaldo de: — Informe sobre el estado de las Islas Filipinas en 

1842. Escrito por el autor del Aristodemo, del Sistema musical de la 

lengua castellana, etc. Madrid: Enero de 1843. 3 vols. 8°. 

The first two volumes are common. Vol. i contains a chart of Filipino written characters, 
and vol. ii, a map of the archipelago. These two volumes contain in all 27 different sec- 
tions, with independent pagination, treating of the ethnology, history, fauna, natural fea- 
tures, industries, commerce, and various governmental and social aspects of the Philippines. 
Vol. iii was published secretly and in a limited edition, and treats of the Spanish policy 
regarding the Philippines. The author advocates training the Filipinos for self-govern- 
ment and then giving them independence. Although this third vol. was listed by Retana 
in his Catdlogo abreviadoy p. 524, it has been rarely cited. It is very rare. Besides the 
copy of the Compaiiia de Tabacos de Filipinas, we know of three copies, one belonging 
to Epifanio de los Santos, Malolos, Bulakan, Luz6n (from a typewritten copy of which we 
publish the translation in our series); one to the late Clemente Zulueta, a Filipino; and 
one to the Peabody Institute Library, at Baltimore. The entire work is of great value, 
although in the light of the latest researches its ethnological part suffers. In addition to 
many notes, we have made the following excerpts in our series from Mas's work: "Ad- 
ministration of government and the captaincy-general;" ii, no 9. Vol. xvii, pp. 322- 
328 (part of appendix). "Character and influence of the friars;'' ii, no. lo. Vol. xxviii, 
pp. 226-265 (in religious appendix). "Judicial conditions of the Philippines in 1842;" 
ii, no. 12. Vol. xxxvi, pp. 279-306 (appendix). "Comments on San Agustin's famous 
letter." Vol. xl, p. 184, note 85; pp. 194, 195, notes 116, 117; pp. 198-205, notes 127 (in 
part), 132, 133, 134 (in part), 136, 139 (in part), 143, 144 (in part), 145; pp. 207-215,

(in part). In addition to these comments are given also in footnotes to San Agustin's 
letter the variants in Mas's reading from those of the copy which we follow. "Public 
instruction;" ii, no. 12. Vol. xlv, pp. 246-262 (in educational appendix). "Politica 
interior;"" iii. We have published this in translation and synopsis, from a typewritten 
transcript made from the copy owned by Epifanio de los Santos, of Malolos, Bulakan, 
Luzon, which was loaned us by James A. LeRoy. For some of the notes we have had 
recourse to the copy conserved in the Peabody Institute Library (whose existence we 
learned of too late to use). Vol. lii, pp. 29-90. See also Retana's La Politica de Espafia,

134 THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 

by C. Sherman, 1844. 5 vols. Illustrations. Plates. Portrait. Maps. 

po. Atlas, po. 

From this we have reprinted the portion treating of '' Jolo and the Sulus;" v, chap, ix, 
(almost entire), pp. 343-390. Vol. xliii, pp. 131-192 (in ethnological appendix; see also 
ut supra, pp. 1 28-1 3 1, and note 31). See Griffin's List for later editions of this work 
(pp. 121, 122; especially p. 122, for the list of the reports of this expedition, several of 
which contain Philippine material, and vol. xxiii, Hydrography, which was written by 
Wilkes). Vol. v also contains other Philippine matter. 

Mallat, J. : — Les Philippines. Histoire, geographic, moeurs, agriculture, 

industrie et commerce des colonies espagnoles dans TOceanie. Pans: 

Arthus Bertrand, 1846. 2 vols. 8°. 

A work of considerable merit, which consists, says Pardo de Tavera, Bibl. fil. (p. 245), 
"not in its originality, but in the system and good arrangement." Largely used by Buzeta 
and Bravo in compiling their Diccionario. Mallat has followed Mas to a considerable 
extent. The atlas accompanying the work is very rare, and we have not seen it. We 
have translated from this the following: "Educational institutions and conditions;" 
ii, chap. XXV (entitled "Public instruction; condition of the sciences of letters and 
arts"), pp. 239-253. Vol. xlv, pp. 263-278 (in educational appendix).

geografico, estadistico, historico, de las Islas Filipinas. Madrid: Im- 

prenta de D. Jose C. de la Peiia, 1851. 2 vols. Folded plans. Folded 

sheets. Portraits. Large 8°. 

Although the engraved title-page of vol. i reads 1850, the imprint on the preceding 
page reads 1851. Pardo de Tavera (Bibl. fil., p. 75, no. 432), calls these authors common 
plagiarists, and declares that the first 254 pages of vol. i are a plagiarism of Mallat's work 
(see also Retana, CatdlogOy p. 62, no. 188, who says that considerable use was made of 
Mallat 's work). The authors acknowledge aid from one Juan Castells y Melcior, who 
had done much in such work. Aid was also obtained (although not acknowledged) 
from the MS. El venerable osorio of Agustin de Santa Maria (q.v., post); and Retana, Esta- 
dismoy i, pp. xxxii, xxxiii, shows their unacknowledged use of Martinez de Zuniga, by a 
parallel passage. In our religious appendix, we translate various parts from this work 
as follows: "Ecclesiastical system in the Philippines," i, pp. 542-545, ii, pp. 271-275, 
363-367. Vol. xxviii, pp. 266-289.

conquista y colonizacion de las posesiones espafiolas en America y Ocea- 
nia, sacados, en su mayor parte, del Real Archivo de Indias. Madrid:

The title-pages are not uniform, and change with vol. iv, reading as follows: "Colec- 
cion de documentos ineditos relativos al descubrimiento, conquista y organizacion de las 
antiguas posesiones espafiolas en America y Oceania, sacados de los archivos del reino, 
y muy especialmente de Indias." The directors of the work were Joaquin F. Pacheco, 
Francisco de Cardenas, and Luis Torres de Mendoza. Unfortunately, as Sr. D. Pedro 
Torres Lanzas, present chief of the Archivo General de Indias, affirms, the proofreading 
was poorly done, and hence the accuracy of this important publication is impaired. Many 
documents treat of the Philippines, for list of which see Pardo de Tavera ""s BibL fil., pp.

translation with the title Travels in the Philippines (London, 1874), in which the appendix 
is omitted. There is also a Spanish translation by S. Vidal y Soler with the title Viajes 
por Filipinas (Madrid, 1875). Both translations are defective, the English especially 
being untrustworthy. Jagor's work is of great value to the student, as its author was a 
keen and trained scientific observer. Considerable use has been made of it in this series.

Pardo de Tavera {Bibl. fil.f p. 317), praises this book highly. Retana {CatdlogOy p. 155), 
judges the book fairly when he says that it contains much useful information, but also 
many inaccuracies. See our translation and summary of this work, under the title "The 
Augustinian Recollects in the Philippines." Vol. xxviii, pp. 3cx>348 (in religious appen-

8°. 

Vol. i, of the series Bihlioteca historica flipina, published under the initiative of Jose 
Gutierrez de la Vega. Although published only in 1892, this work was undertaken by 
Delgado in Guiguan in 1751, continued in Palapag, and finished, June 6, 1754. The 
author seems to have utilized San Antonio's Chronicas to a great extent; but he has 
added much material of his own, so that the book is a valuable addition to Philippina. 
Especially interesting are the third, fourth, and fifth books on ethnology, and natural history. 
In the third book, Delgado inserts most of San Agustin's famous letter; and the editor 
inserts a portion of Loarca's Relation (see vol. v, pp. 34-187), and excerpts from Le 
Gobien's Histoire des isles Marianes (Paris, 1700). Cited many times in our series, and 
excerpts published in our series as follows: "Some things worth knowing about the govern- 
ors of the Filipinas Islands;" part i, book ii, chap, xvii, pp. 212-215. Vol. xvii, pp. 314- 
322. "Religious condition of the islands;'' part i, book ii, chaps, ii-ix, xiv, and xv; pp. 
140-158, and 184-188. Vol. xxviii, pp. 163-191 (a part of the religious appendix).

note 325 (in part). There are also many variants given in the footnotes under San Agus- 
tin's letter, from the reading of the MS. which we follow in our publication of that letter. 
Delgado was born at Cadiz, and went to the Philippines in 171 1. He worked in the mis- 
sions of Samar, where he held various offices, was many years in Cebu, and labored as well 
in Leyte and Bohol. A copy of the original MS. of this work is mentioned by Sommer-

Vols, ii and iii of the Bihlioteca historica filipina (which was undertaken through the 
influence of Jose Gutierrez de la Vega). Santa Ines's Cronica dates from 1676. Pardo 
de Tavera says that its author wrote it with the intention of publication. The MS. (writ- 
ten on rice paper) was preserved in the Franciscan convent at Manila, the first volume 
entire, but the second somewhat mutilated. The MS. is also cited by Huerta, Estado, 
p. 462; and Marcellino da Civezza, Saggio di hihl.y pp. 551, 552. At the end of the second 
vol. the editor has added 12 appendices, among them two valuable relations of Juan de 
Plasencia, O. S. F. The Cronica is divided into three books, and deals with the islands

themselves, and especially with the history of the Franciscans. The third book is taken 
up with the story of the martyrdom of Pedro Bautista and his companions in Japan in the 
sixteenth century. Santa Ines was born at Penaranda de Bracamonte, and went to the 
Philippines in 1674. He was appointed chronicler of his province in 1676, and in accord- 
ance therewith wrote the above history, comprising the years 1 576-1627. His death oc- 
curred at Lilio, August 4, 1713 (Pardo de Tavera, Bibl. fl., p. 395).

Gutierrez, Manuel, O. S. A.; and others: — [The friar memorial of 1898.] 

Manila, April 21, 1898. 

This memorial was never presented, as the American forces captured Manila before it 
could be sent to Spain. It gives the friar point of view of the troubles that led to the 
revolution of 1896, and was the joint work of the Augustinians, Franciscans, Dominicans, 
Recollects, and Jesuits, each order being represented by its provincial. Fifty copies were 
pulled off press, ten for each order. Our typewritten transcript was made from one of 
these printed copies that was made for the Recollects. An edition was published at Ma- 
drid, "Imprenta de la Viuda de M. Minuesa de los Rios," ca.y 1900. This contains some

few slight verbal changes from the other copy, but not sufficient to make a diflPerence in the 
sense. An untrustworthy version of the memorial was published by Ambrose Coleman, 

0. P., in the Rosary Magazine for 1900 (partly in direct translation and partly in synopsis). 
This is an exceedingly valuable document as it gives the friar viewpoint, and is, moreover, 
the official record of their position. Vol. lii, pp. 227-286.

Vol. i contains for the most part the descriptive matter, and vol. iiy the special scientific 
matter. See for the table of contents Griffin's List, p. 12; Pardo de Tavera praises this 
work for its mechanical excellence, and says of it: *'It is a compilation of what has been 
written on the Filipinas. The part on meteorology and magnetism is excellent, but the 
rest is a simple compilation, in which the Jesuits have brought together what other authors 
have said, without the least personal criticism in the opinions copied, which are at times 
absurd." The atlas was issued by the Coast and Geodetic Survey, and before publishing, 
it was necessary to redraw the maps to a uniform scale. Most of the text of vol. i has been 
translated into EngHsh and published in vols, iii and iv of the Rept. of the Phil. Com. for 
1900 (Washington, 1901). We publish extracts from this work under the following titles:

of nineteenth-century and present-day conditions, better qualified than any other "to write 
on this period. The present contribution furnishes material, by editorial comment and a 
working bibliography, for a careful study of the period treated. See his Philippine life 
in town and country (New York and London, 1905), which presents the Filipino in a 
clearer light than has been done elsewhere. Vol. lii, pp. 112-207.

Ca., 1525. Biblioteca Ambrosiana (Milan); L. 103 — Sup. Begins 
after short dedication to Philippe de Villiers TIsle-Adam, grand master 
of the knights of Rhodes or Malta, with the dedicatory epistle: ''Perche 
fono molti curiofi Jil"^°. et exell"^°. Signor che". Ends **Queste mie 
poche faticque a lo Jnclito et Illuftriffimo Signor philipo de Villers lis- 
leadam gra maeft° de rhodi digniffimo. JL Caualier ant° pagaphetta." 
Published (Italian and English) in vols, xxxiii, and xxxiv, pp. 11-180; 
with notes, and photographic facsimiles of 23 charts by Pigafetta; and 
photographic facsimile of last page of MS. 

A journal of the first circumnavigation of the globe. Pigafetta, an Italian of noble family, 
and an ardent admirer of Magalhaes, kept a journal during the voyage, from which evi- 
dently this relation was compiled. This is called the Ambrosian Manuscript, from its place 
of conservation in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Milan, Italy. It is the oldest of the four 
manuscripts (see posty p. 239), and dates from either shortly before or shortly after 1525. 
Ciscato (Antonio Pigafetta viaggiatore vicentino del secolo XVI; in "Atti delF accademia 
Olimpica di Vicenza," xviii, a. 1883) believes that it was procured for the founder of the 
Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Cardinal Federico Borromeo, by one of the learned men whom 
he sent out, according to Manzoni, to every part of Europe, to buy ancient books and 
manuscripts. It was discovered among the papers of the Biblioteca Ambrosiana by Dr. 
Carlo Amoretti, prefect or conservator of that library, and first made known to the world in 
his Primo viaggio (Milan, 1800), although in a wofully mutilated form, as Amoretti has 
edited the manuscript almost beyond recognition in places, with the result that Pigafetta's 
words are twisted into new meanings. This manuscript, written in a mixture of Italian, 
the dialect of Vicenza, and some few Spanish words, is probably a copy of the one pre- 
sented to the grand master of Rhodes, as it bears the following inscription on the inside of 
first cover-page: "Ce livre est du chevallier de Forette;" for it is scarcely likely that Villiers 
de ITsle-Adam would give away his copy. It is written in a volume bound simply in 
heavy walnut-colored paper. Pages streaked and dog-eared at edges. Height, 273 mm.; 
width, 204 mm.; thickness, 28 mm. Written on ordinary rag paper on fol. 1-80. Fol- 
lowing this (fol. 81-92), is "Alcune regole sulF arte della navigazione," or "Some rules on 
the art of navigation," also by Pigafetta. The remainder of the book (fol. 93-142) is blank. 
The text is written in a beautiful minute Roman letter, of 24, 25, and 26 lines to the page. 
For a more complete description of this manuscript, see Robertson's Magellan's voyage 
around the world (Cleveland, 1906), ii, pp. 241-248; and for a discussion of the bibliography 
of Pigafetta manuscripts and printed books (which is somewhat apart from the present 
subject), see ut supra, pp. 241-313. This may be the MS. cited by Leon Pinelo, Epitome, 
p. 88, who mentions an Italian MS.

signed by Goiti and Riquel (the only one published in our series, vol. hi, pp. 105-107); 
Vindoro, dated March, and signed by Juan de Salzedo and Juan de Gamboa, the notary; 
Vindoro {sic), dated May 16, 1570, and signed by Goiti and Riquel; Cubuyan, dated Dec. 
8, 1569, and signed by Antonio Carvajal, and Juan de Gamboa; Helin, dated March 24, 
1570, and signed by Salzedo and Gamboa; Caluyan (dated Jan. 28, 1570); Poro (dated 
March 2, 1570); Similara (dated Feb. 8, 1570); and Luban (dated March 14, 1570); 
all signed as above. Cited in part by Retana, Archho, v, pp. 426-428. 

Las nuevas que scriven de las yslas del poniente Hernando Riquel y 
otros. January 11, 1574. A. de S.; secretaria de estado; leg. 155. Be- 
gins "Sienpre e ydo dando aviffo." Ends **por dos duplicados en dife- 
rentes naujios q® nra fenor lleue enfaluo, de mex° xj de henero 1574. a°s." 
Published (both Spanish and English) in vol. hi, pp. 230-249. 

This document consists of two parts: i. A letter written by Riquel and others, which 
was carried to Mexico in one of the ships leaving Manila, July i, 1573, and arriving at 
Acapulco, November 15, 1573. 2. A postscript, added -by the Mexican officials before 
they forwarded the letter to Spain in 1574, enumerates the cargo brought in the ships from 
the Philippines. An endorsement on the back of this document, dated May 7, 1854, 
attests that it was copied on that date by royal authorization for Adrian Garcia Hernandez, 
then general secretary of the superior government of the Philippines. The original covers 
about 51/3 pp. folio size, and the paper shows discoloration and ink-blots. In M. B. de 
U.; 711, 20 — 3*, caja n®. 22, is a document which is similar to the above, but which 
shows some slight differences. It is evidently the same letter that was written by Riquel, 
or a contemporary copy of the letter written to Mexico. It is entitled as follows: "Re- 
lacion de las nueuas q escriue de las yslas de poniente Hernando de Riquel cscriuano de la 
gouemacion dellos que partieron del puerto de manila en vno de dos nauios a pri® de julio 
1573." 1573' Begins "siempre he ydo . . ." Ends **■ artifices de espana". See vol.

III, p. 231, notes 78, 79; p. 233, note 80; p. 243, note 83; and p. 316. This is bound with 
the Artieda MS. {q.v.)y but the handwriting is different from that of that MS. In the 
Munoz Collection, in R. A. de la H., no. 33-34, is another Riqucl MS., which is evidently 
a partial transcript of the printed version of RiqueFs relation (see Medina, Bibl. esp.y p. 34, 
no. 7; and Pardo de Tavera, Bibl. fil., p. 361, no. 2397). This is entitled: "Nuevas de 
las islas del Poniente que escrive . . escr"". de la govo^. dellas a un su am®, a Mexo.'' 
Begins "Residimos en esta isla de Luzon, . . ." Ends "Dios los lleve en salvamente.'' 
In the catalogue of the Munoz Collection is the following concerning this MS.: "One single 
sheet in the handwriting of Senor Munoz, transcribed from a copy belonging to Conde 
del Aguila. It contains Mas nuevas de las Islas de Poniente que scribe Hernando Rcquel, 
escribano de la gobernacion de Manila a un amigo de Mejico.' To it are added some 
news from Italy and Africa, and the epitaph of King Don Fernando, which was printed in 
Sevilla in the year 1574." At the end of the letter, Munoz has written, "Transcript made 
from another modem transcript of the Conde del Aguila contained in a folio legajo en- 
titled 'Felipe 2°.' This must have been taken from the printed copy, defective in part as 
the 'outs'* marked by the periods indicate. Sevilla, March 23, 1785. Munoz." The 
printed relation is also described by Gallardo, EnsayOy no. 3630.

the edges. Fastened to it is another leaf containing the relation of Hernando Riquel, q.v.^ 
ante, although the paper on which it is written is of a different texture. The Artieda MS. 
contains a number of sidenotes opposite the various paragraphs. It is listed on p. 14 of 
the CatdJogo (Madrid, 1900) of the library. In the Archivo General de las Indias is a MS., 
purporting to be, merely through the endorsement by some archivist, by Juan de la Isla; 
but which is the MS. of Artieda (with some minor changes, q.v.y ut supra, pp. 190-208, 
316). The pressmark of this MS. is est. i, caj. i, leg. 1I23. It bears as title: "Relacion 
de las islas del Poniente y del camino que a ellas se hizo desde la nueva spna." Begins "Ay 
en la nueva spna . . ."*'' Ends *'de palabra mandandomeloV. mag." It bears neither 
date nor signature. See ut supra, p. 190, note 54. Another copy is cited by Ochoa, Catd- 
logo razonado, as existing in the old Biblioth^ue royalle; 1588 (Saint-Germain); 240; 
papeles varios. This has 2 leaves missing at the end. In the catalogue of the present 
Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, the pressmark is given as '""Manuscrits espagnols et portu- 
gais; esp. 325; no. 3, fol. 10-13;" but the date is wrongly given as 1582, which date does 
in fact appear on the document. This MS. is mistakenly ascribed to Juan de la Isla by 
Fernandez de Navarrete, Bihl. mar, esp., ii, p. 239, under the following title: "Descripcion 
de los puertos de Acapulco y Navidad, y de las islas que descubri6 la armada del general 
Lcgazpi; sus alturas y distancias; costumbres de los indigcnas; la navegacion que hizo; 
islas del Maluco, Japon y Lequios, con noticia de la China y Nueva-Guinea."

Retana cites this MS., which he gives almost in full, in his Archivo, v, pp. 448-456; but 
he suggests its date as 1572. This MS. (or the MS. noted, post, p. 251), seems to be the one 
cited by Fernandez de Navarrete, Bihl. mar. esp., ii, p. 284, the pressmark of which is the 
same as the above, and a transcript of which is in Madrid; Deposito hidrografico.

This is a long notarial document containing an account of the progress of Sande's Bor- 
nean expedition, told by means of depositions, letters, instructions, etc., all of which 
are attested properly by notaries. The above title was evidently made by a clerk or ar- 
chivist. The MS. seems to have been compiled as a report to the home government.

zalo Ronquillo de Peiialosa, certifying that the relation was written by 

Loarca, and may be considered as true. Published (both Spanish and 

English) in vol. v, pp. 34-187. 

This document was formerly housed in the archives at Simancas, where it bore, accord- 
ing to Juan Bautista Muiioz, pressmark "Indias, leg. 3 de los int. Descripciones i Pobla- 
ciones.'''' Copied by the latter, his final revision being completed August 10, 1782; and 
now among the Munoz papers at R. A. de la H., Madrid, where it bears the following 
title in the catalogue: "Tratado de las Islas Filipinas con todas las poblaciones reducidas 
a la obediencia del Rey en 1 580, los pueblos espanoles, manera de gobiemo de estos y de 
Indios por Miguel de Loarca; copiose en Simancas en cinco cuademos." Of it Munoz 
says: *""It is a very fine relation, for one can with difficulty find another of that time so 
complete. [It merits] peculiar credit in whatever touches upon religion, opinions, cere- 
monies, manners, and customs of the natives, which it appears that the author investi- 
gated with great care from the beginning of our settlements in those islands. On simple 
paper, but in the letter of the time in which it was written. . . . Written on 14 sheets. 
. . . It was written in the year 1580, that is, 16 years after the settlement of the 
Spaniards in Filipinas, during the governorship of Don Gonzalo Ronquillo, as appears 
from the introduction and from the third chapter suh. tried.'''' A transcript from Munoz"'s 
copy, or a duplicate of it, exists in the Lenox branch of the New York Public Library, but 
like the Munoz MS. it differs in some essentials from the real original, namely in spelling, 
capitalization, and punctuation. Beginning with chapter vi, Munoz"'s transcript was 
published in Delgado's Historia (Manila, 1892) as an appendix to part i, book iii, pp. 
371-392, by the editor of that book. Ternaux-Compans, Archives des voyages (Paris, 
1840), i, pp. 1-50, gives a loose and inadequate translation of the manuscript. The "De 
las Costumbres de los Indios Bisayas, i otros de Filipinas''"', cited by Barcia, ii, col. 638, 
appears to be Loarca's Relation. Blumentritt, VoceA. einz. Ausd.., p. 49, cites this rela- 
tion from Folletines del Diario de Manila, 1877; but whether it was reproduced by that 
paper or merely cited therein, we arc unable to state.

A collection of papers relating to the matter of the tribute, consisting of some twenty-four 
documents (which do not all appear in their correct chronological order). This is a most 
interesting and valuable MS., although often filled with unnecessary details and quibbling, 
as it shows one phase of the struggle between the ecclesiastical and civil powers, which 
was so often to break out in the Philippines. The earliest document bears date, Manila, 
Jan. 25, and the latest Quiapo, March 21. The various documents are not all arranged 
chronologically, having been copied in wrong order probably by a government clerk, but 
we have arranged them correctly, in our publication, where they are presented in transla- 
tion and synopsis. The original MS. is mutilated in places, and bears several endorse- 
ments. A transcript of it was made for Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A.

There are three MSS. known to be in existence, all of which differ somewhat from one 
another. We have used mainly what appears to be the real original, existing in the Archives 
of the Indies. Of the other two, one is in the R. A. de la H., and the other is evidently 
a copy therefrom by Ventura del Arco (see post). Below are the necessary details regard- 
ing these three MSS., which we designate as A, B, and C, respectively. A. [Memorial to 
the Council.] A. del.; est. 68, caj. 7, leg. 35. B. Memorial general de todos los estados de 
las yslas filipinas sobre las cosas de ellas para su mag*^. Manila, [July 26], 1586. R. A. 
de la H.; papeles de los Jesuitas; tomo 8, fol. 330-339. C. Juntas de los Estados de la 
ciudad de Manila para enviar un comisionado a Madrid para informar al Rey acerca de 
las necesidades de las Islas, ano de 1586. Vol. i, no. i. We have used all three MSS. in 
our pubUcation. See vol. vi, p. 158, note 37; p. 165, note 40, and pp. 230-233. This is 
a most important MS. for the study of the early history of the Philippines. Probably the 
document cited by Fernandez Duro, Armada espanolay iii, p. 60, note, who cites the copy 
in Madrid; Deposito hidrografico; tomo 18. This document is also published by Pas- 
tells in his edition of Colin's Labor evangelica.

These decrees all treat of mission affairs and ecclesiastical supervision of the regulars 
by the bishops, which was a bone of contention in all the Spanish Indies. The first four 
concern Nueva Espana, and are dated June 5, 1607, Dec. 13, 1620, Apr. 30, 1622, and 
June 22, 1624, the first two being sent to the viceroy, the third to the bishop of the province 
of Guajaca, and the fourth to the viceroy, archbishop, and bishops. These were probably 
used in the consideration of the question in the Philippines. The last three decrees have 
to do with the Philippines directly. The first two, dated Sept. 2, and Oct. 2, 1638, were 
published from MSS. from A. H. N. (5. v., VOL. XXIX, pp. 104-107; see also post^ p. 207).

mante.] Manila, November 19, 1719. Ayer Collection. See posty 
"Arco, Ventura del," iv, no. 16. Vol. xliv, pp. 165-181.

roso . . ." Ends "muchos aiios de mi deseo.", with date and signa- 
ture. Vol. xl, pp. 183-279. 

The letter itself is followed by certain facetious questions and answers concerning the 
Filipino, which are ascribed to Pedro Murillo Velarde, S. J. W. E. Retana says (Esta- 
dismoy ii, p. 281*) that Murillo Velarde was a genial author, but very keen and observant 
withal. "He was very anti-Indian, a name applied to those who do not flatter them; and 
it is known that in a quarter of an hour of good humor, he wrote the pages which I tran- 
scribe"" (here follow the questions and answers). Retana notes that Murillo Velarde and 
Delgado did not have the same opinion in the matter. This is a famous letter, and many 
copies of it exist. See ut supra^ pp. 183, 184, and the footnotes for the entire letter. The 
MS. described above is written on good rag paper of about octavo size, and occupies fol. 
1-3 1 recto. The questions and answers of Murillo Velarde occupy fol. 31 recto-32 verso. 
There is one blank leaf in front, and three at the end. The MS. has been carefully made, 
and all quotations are in red ink. On the cover, it bears the number 16. It is not the 
original MS., but a copy (probably made almost contemporaneously with the original). 
We give the variants in the MS. in M. B. de U., and that presented by Delgado, together 
with comments of the latter and of Mas. In ethnological appendix. Cited by Blumcn-

at 200 pesetas). It is listed in VindeFs Catdlogo (Madrid, 1903), iii, p. 211, no. 2699. 
He says of it: ''Original and unpublished MS. composed of 32 pages; written in a very 
vigorous hand; also written on the margins of [several of] the last pages. An interesting

This MS. consists of two parts: the first is the relation proper by Valdes Tamon; the 
second part is the ecclesiastical survey and was written by Pablo Francisco Rodriguez de 
Berdozido, royal accountant at Manila, in 1742. In "Motivo de Efta obra," which pre- 
cedes the work, a letter from Don Joseph Patino, royal secretary, dated Sept. 20, 1735, 
states that the king desired news of the islands, and of their fortifications, as the recent fire 
at the palace in Madrid had destroyed many papers. He asked for plans, and reports on 
fortifications, troops, munitions, and artillery. The ecclesiastical portion of the work was 
written in obedience to a letter, dated Madrid, Aug. 30, 1739, ^rom the royal secretary. 
The book is a beautiful specimen of workmanship. It is folio size and bound in boards. 
For better protection, the entire book, with its binding, has been enclosed in two thick 
wooden covers. The paper is thick and heavy, and somewhat worm-eaten. Some of the 
maps are in colors. Another copy of this MS. exists in the Sevilla archives. A short ex- 
tract from a copy of this MS., probably existing in Manila, is published in vol. iii, of the 
annual Report of the War Department (Washington, 1903), pp. 437, 438, note a.

del (Catdhgo, i, no. i, 404), who says of it "Unpublished MS., a work absolutely unknown", 
and prices it at 80 pesetas. It was purchased by Mr. Ayer from the C. G. de T. de F., 
by whom it was priced at 65 francs. Its author was an Englishman who had become a 
naturalized Spaniard, and whose naturalization papers exist in A. de I.

This MS., which was purchased from the Madrid bookseller, P. Vindel, by Mr. Ayer in 
1904 is bound in a modem binding embossed on the back, "Ingleses en Filipinas". It 
has a modern title-page (q.v., above), and, in addition, a modern index at the end, which 
contains, however, numerous errors. The MS. itself consists of 57 folios, numbered in ink 
by the person who transcribed the various documents from the originals in 1765. In addi- 
tion each page is also numbered in pencil (114 in all). The MS. is in excellent condition, 
and is worn through in but few places, due to the old-fashioned method of blotting, which has 
disintegrated the paper in several instances. The titles of the various documents as given 
above have been taken partly from the index, partly from the documents themselves, and 
in part made up.

Although the authorship of this document is not indicated on the document itself, an 
entry in the catalogue of the museum ascribes it to Dalrymple; if the date "Nov. 23, 1762," 
is the date when it was written, it was thus written after the conquest of Manila by Draper 
and Cornish; and must have been written in England, or where the writer had not learned 
of the success of the British arms. In the absence of this direct catalogue entry, we had 
suggested Draper as its author (see ut supra, p. 43, note). There was a Spanish translation 
of this document in Ministerio de Ultramar, Madrid (cited by Moya y Jimenez, p. 240).

This MS. was purchased by Mr. Ayer from the Madrid bookseller, P. Vindel, in 1903, 
for the sum of 225 pesetas (although Vindel asked 300 pesetas for it; see no. 2693 in his 
CatdlogOf iii, Madrid, 1903, p. 208). Of it Vindel says: "A document of high historical 
interest. In it are related with the greatest veracity all the events of the capture of Manila 
by the British forces. In part, the conduct of its author, the most illustrious Senor Don 
Manuel Antonio Roxo del Rio y Veyra, is vindicated." The MS. is bound in modern 
leather covers, embossed on the back "Raxo [sic] Operaciones en Manila. MS. 1763''. 
The MS. itself is badly stained and is worn in many places; and has been mended at some 
time. It consists of 52 folios, which are numbered in pencil. It is either the real original 
of the relation or a copy made shortly after it was written. Cited by Fernandez Duro,

by Manuel Danvila, ii, p. 206.

leaves (of which the first two are blank, the third, title-page, 4-9, the letter by Torre, 10-86, 
text proper, and 87, blank); and is bound in vari-colored silk {not green velvet, as stated 
by the catalogue); ornamented gilt edges. It cannot be stated with certainty whether this 
is an autograph copy by Viana, or whether it was made in Manila, or in Madrid. It for- 
merly belonged to the collection of W. E. Retana, and was purchased by Mr. Ayer from Vin- 
del, who priced it at 350 pesetas. Several other copies of this MS. are in existence, two 
being found in the A. de I. at Sevilla, and one (pp. unnumbered) belonging to Antonio 
Graifio, Madrid. It is mentioned by Montero y Vidal {Historia general de Filipinas, ii, pp. 
118, 119), who gives a table of its contents; and Retana, Estadismoy iiy pp. 343*-*344. 
This is a most important MS. [notwithstanding that Retana (La Politica de Espafia, i, p. 
273) says that it contains nothing extraordinary], for it describes economic conditions in 
the Orient exactly as they existed at the time of its writing; and its author was an 
educated and fearless man.

Estadismoy ii, p. *344; and La Politica de Espafiay i, p. 273. It was acquired by Mr. Ayer 
from the C. G. de T. de F., who priced it at 120 francs. A most valuable economic docu-

whom it was probably purchased by P. Vindel, from whom it was purchased in 1904 by Mr. 
Ayer. The MS. is bound in green velvet, and is a small folio of i unnumbered leaf, which 
serves as title-page; 50 numbered leaves, of which the first 46 are text, and the remainder 
blank; and i unnumbered leaf which contains the index made in the same hand as the rest 
of the book. It is impossible to state whether this letter-book was written by Viana him- 
self in order that he might preserve a copy of the letters that he wrote. Most of the docu- 
ments are accompanied by a short synopsis that may have been made by a government 
clerk; although it is also possible that it may have been made by Viana.

A note on the flyleaf of this MS. written by Vicente Barrantes, in whose library this MS. 
formerly rested, is as follows: "The author of this remarkable memorial was Don Manuel 
Bernaldez Pizarro, government assessor and auditor of war and navy. He went to the 
islands in 1809, since he declares that he had resided there for 17 years, when he wrote 
this in the first months of 1827." It is a valuable MS., and treats of all the manifold ele- 
ments entering into the administration of the Philippines - military; Morosj native 
population; lands; ecclesiastical matters; foreigners, exiles, and politicians in the islands; 
Spaniards from Europe in the islands; residencias; employes; aid sent to the islands; 
revenue matters; industrial aflfairs; judicial; etc. Small folio of 87 leaves in all (i flyleaf,

II. MANUSCRIPTS IN ADDITION TO THOSE 
OF "THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS, 1493-1898" 



Carlos L; and others: — [Documents and notes on Magallanes and Fa- 
leiro, and the expedition.] Lenox; Spanish-American collection; in 
Documentos del Torre do Tombo, Simancas, etc., MS. 1518-1525. 

This contains a synopsis of the instructions for the expedition, the crews of the vessels, 
etc.; and some matter on Loaisa's expedition. Some of this matter is found in Fernandez 
de Navarrete's CoUccion de viajes. 

: — Viagem de Ferna de Magalhaens pera Malluco a anno de 1519, 

trasladada de hum Caderno de hum piloto genoes. Paris; B. N. Begins 

**Partio de Sebylha a . . ." 

Formerly in the Bibliotheque du Roi, where its pressmark was 7168^"^; fol. 57-64. 
Paris says of this MS.: "This relation by a Genoese pilot who accompanied the famous 
Magellan has no need of being recommended to the interest of geographers. Unfortu- 
nately it is too short, and the writing is very poor." This MS. is written in excellent Por- 
tuguese, and general consensus of opinion is inclined to impute its authorship to a Portu- 
guese, inasmuch as Magalhaes had no Genoese pilot with him. This account is repro- 
duced in English by Stanley {First voyage round the world by Magellan^ pp. 1-29). It is 
cited often in Mosto's Pigafetta, and in Robertson's Magellan's voyage around the world, 
and the notes to vols, xxxiii and xxxiv of this series. This is perhaps the document 
cited by Barcia (1737, 1738), ii, col. 669, namely, "Viage de Fernando Magallanes," a 
Portuguese MS. then conserved in the library of Leida.

A folio volume of 306 fol. It contains matter concerning the voyages of Magalhaes and 
Lopez de Villalobos, the relation of Estevan Rodriguez, the log of Rodrigo de Espinosa 
and his relation, the relation of Alonso de Arellano, and others. This is a late copy merely.

First mentioned in 1841 by Thomassy, who found it in the library of Mons. Beaupr^ 
judge of the court of first instance at Nancy, France (on account of which it is known as 
the Nancy MS.); and who described it and gave various passages from it (Bulletin de la 
Soc. giog.y Paris, Sept. 1843). The catalogue of the Libri sale (July, 1862, p. 92, no. 456) 
says: "This MS. belonged to the secretary of the Cardinal of Lorraine, and . . was in 
the convent of St. Leopold at Nancy. There is every reason to suppose that this is the 
manuscript copy of the relation of his voyage which Pigafetta had addressed to the Duke 
of Lorraine, as Vespucci (at the beginning of the same century) addressed his letters on 
America to another Duke of Lorraine" (see also Harrisse, Bihl. Amer. vetus.y Add.y Paris, 
1872, p. xixii). From the library of Mons. Beaupre, the manuscript passed into the posses- 
sion of the Paris bookseller Potier, by whom it was sold in 1855 into the Solar collection 
(according to Mosto, p. 41 ; Harrisse says, ut supra, p. xxxiii, that is was sold at Potier's 
sale in March, 1851, where it was no. 506). At the demise of Mons. Felix Solar in 1861, it 
came into the possession of a London bookseller, who paid 1,650 francs for it (Stanley's 
First voyage round the world, p. li). The Venetian canon Pietro Marasca tried to ac- 
quire the manuscript for the library of his city, first at Nancy, and then at Paris, but in 
vain, and after it was taken to London lost ail trace of it (see Morsolin's Elogio di Antonio 
Pigafetta -cited by Mosto). It appears next at London in the Libri sale (July, 1862), 
where it was bid in by Sir Thomas Phillipps of Cheltenham, England, for £135. It has 
been partially described by Thomassy (Bulletin de la Societe de Geographie, vol. xx, 1843, 
pp. 165-183), and by the Solar and Libri catalogues, which sources Harrisse and Mosto 
follow; but we are indebted for the most complete description of this document yet fur- 
nished to the courtesy of Mr. T. FitzRoy Fenwick, grandson of Sir Thomas Phillipps (who 
died in 1872). Small folio, finely bound in red morocco, tooled and gilt (Divin binding). 
Written on fine wh'te vellum in a beautiful French hand of the sixteenth century, and the 
volume as a whole is in an excellent state of preservation. There are 99 leaves with writing, 
1 1 X 7 I /2 in. In addition, at the beginning are one paper flyleaf and two blank vellum 
leaves, and at the end two blank vellum leaves and one paper flyleaf. The text occupies 
folios 3 recto-98 verso, and is divided into 57 numbered chapters, the titles of which arc 
written in red or blue. The initial letters are handsomely illuminated in gold and colors, 
and there are twenty-three richly-executed charts (most of them full page). There are 
three vocabularies. It is nearer the Italian MS. in the few passages that we have been able 
to collate with the Ambrosian MS. than are the other two French MSS. Thomassy 
dates it later than both the latter, but in the same general epoch as MS. 24224, which it

resembles in chirography; and regards is as a revision of Pigafetta's first MS. which he 
mistakenly supposes to be 5650. It is by far the best of the French MSS. (dating probably 
from the second quarter of the i6th century), and is apparently the oldest of them; and 
may, indeed, have been translated directly from the Italian MS., though no positive state- 
ment can be made until a thorough collation of the Ambrosian MS. and the Nancy is made.

son's Magellan s voyage around the worlds ii, pp. 248-253, and 257-260. 
Its old pressmark in the royal library was 10270 B; it being sent to that library in 1694 
by Abbe Bizot. It is an adaptation and translation of the Italian MS. {q.v.^ ante, p. 144). 
Bound in red morocco; embossed on back, ''A. PIGAPHETE | — | navigation 
I DANS I L'INDE. I — I 5650 |." Height 303 mm.; width, 203 mm. Written on paper, 
consisting of 114 folios, in Gothic letters, in two hands, the second comprising fol. 72 recto- 
92 recto (but it must have been written by the same person as the rest of the MS., only ap- 
pearing more hurried and less careful). Each full page has twenty-nine red-ruled lines, 
and twenty-eight lines of writing. Paragraphs are separated by a black line, and start 
with a hanging indention. Initial letters are in both red and blue ink, as are also para- 
graph marks ''^■" which occur scattered throughout the text. Titles to charts (of which 
there are 23) and other headings are in red ink. Unnumbered chapter headings distin- 
guished by no other title than "Chapitre," occur at intervals. The relation of the voyage 
comprises fol. 1-96 recto. Following (fol. 96 verso-114) is the treatise on the globe (fol. 
96 verso containing the figure of the sphere). This is the older of the two MSS. conserved 
at Paris; and dates probably from near the middle of the i6th century. It has never been 
published in full, although Stanley translates it in part in his First voyage round the world 
(London, 1874)- see Robertson, ut supra, ii, p. 301. See full treatment of bibliography 
of Pigafetta MSS. and printed books, in Robertson, ut supra, ii, pp. 241-313. This may 
be the Pigafetta MS. cited by Gonzalez Barcia.

XXXIII, notes, pp. 273-366, and xxxiv, notes, pp. 153-180; and Robert-

Its old pressmark in the Bibliotheque Nationale was Fonds La Valliere, no. 68. Bound 
in green morocco; embossed on back: "NAVIGAT | EN LINDE | DE PIGAPHE |"; 
edges gilt. Height, 275 mm.; width, 185 mm. Written on fine parchment, consisting of 
103 folios (although it shows 104 due to misnumbering). Each page has twenty-nine lines 
of writing, which is most painstaking, and more easily legible than that of 5650. The 
initial letters are beautifully illuminated, and the charts (twenty-three in number) are 
beautifully executed (the inscriptions thereof being in red ink). Certain headings occur 
throughout the MS. An incomplete copy of 5650, certain somewhat broad passages 
having been smoothed down. The relation of the voyage occupies fol. 1-86 verso. The 
treatise on the globe comprises fol. 87-104 (figure of globe lacking). See Robertson, ut 
supra-, and vols, xxxiii and xxxiv of this series. This MS. is described by Guillaume 
de Bure, Catalogue des livres de la bibliotheque de feu M. le due de la Valliere (Paris, 1783); 
iii, pp. 35, 36; but the conclusions are entirely wrong. It has never been published.

An interesting letter, in which the affairs of the young colony are discussed. Like 
various other oflBcials, Lavezaris complains bitterly of Sande, whose Bomean campaign 
he condemns as useless and costly, both in life and treasure. The death of Andres de 
Mirandaola is recorded, and the frightful mortality of the soldiers. The governor engages 
in trade, although it is against the law. Certain encomiendas have been restored to Lave- 
zaris by the king, of which he had been deprived by Sande. On the MS. is written the 
comment of the Council. Following this letter is the petition presented by Lavezaris

leg. 42. Begins "Muy Reverendo Padre. Dominus Tecum . . .'* 

Ends "menor hijo de V. R°.'*, with signature. 

This short letter was addressed to the Jesuit rector, who must have been Antonio Scdeno, 
who had come to the islands in 1581 with Salazar, the first bishop. It must have been 
written in 1582, as Aguirre mentions that the Augustinians have been eighteen years in the 
islands. The letter concerns the status of the Augustinians in their mission and religious 
work. It is a copy only of the original, and was made by Salvador de Argon, notary and 
apostolic secretary. 

[Memorial addressed to Felipe II.] [Madrid, ca,^ 1583?] A. de I.; 
est. 68, caj. i, leg. 42. Begins "S. C. R. M. fray andres de aguirre pro- 
vincial . . ." Ends *^en que rrecibira mucha merced y limosna.*' 

Evidently only a copy of the original, as it bears no signature, or date. The date can 
be fixed at about 1583, as Aguirre says that he had first gone to the Philippines nineteen 
years earlier with Legazpi, and that he had now returned to Spain in the interests of his 
brethren. He makes various requests of Felipe for the bettering of the condition of the 
Augustinians and the people in general, and represents the poverty of the country.

ordered the notary to draw up a copy of a certain testimony that had been taken by Her- 
nando Ssanches, alcalde-mayor of the province of Balaian, before said notary. According 
to that copy, it appears that Morga appearing before the said alcalde-mayor, at the port of 
Anazebu, December 15, 1600, related briefly the events of the battle, and ordered the taking 
of testimonies in regard to it. Accordingly depositions were taken from the following on

vent of Caniya; Marcos de la Cueva; Alferez Diego Nunez; Alferez Bernardo de Billa-

(j^arco; Martin Rodriguez; sargento Andres Ginete; Capt. Bartolome de la Cruz; 
Alonso de Veloa y Lemos; Alferez Juan Xuarez de Almesto; Alferez Jusephe de Naveda 
y Alvarado. All of these men narrate the story of the battle. The document is concluded

San Estevan, Gregorio de, O. S. F.: — Historia de las islas Molucas 

y sus guerras. [Ca.^ 1612 ?] 

Cited by Huerta, Estado, p. 505. San Estevan professed in the province of San Pablo 
in Spain. After going to the Philippines, he was appointed master of novices at Manila 
in November, 1609. It can only be conjectured that he was in the Moluccas thereafter 
until 1 61 2. In March, 1622, he was appointed guardian of the Cavite convent, and in 
Jime of that year became definitor and vicar of the monastery of Santa Clara at Manila. 
In 1625 he became guardian of the Manila convent, where he died in 1632, after serving 
also in two other villages.

is mentioned by Colin in his Labor evangeUca (pp. 2, 3), in his remarks in "Al religiose 
lector." He there mentions both Chirino's published Historia, and an unpublished MS.,

THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS 



of both of which he makes use in his work. The MS. is written by several native aman- 
uenses as is shown by the various hands. It is on rice paper, and has been holed and 
eaten by the destructive white ant. The MS. is bound in carabao hide. It contains five 
books as follows: the first, with 32 chapters; the second, with 27; the third, with 33; the 
fourth, with 36; the fifth, with 55. A paragraph, written by Juan de Bueras, S. J., and 
provincial of Filipinas, 1 627-1 636, translates as follows: "For the good memory of Father 
Pedro Chirino, who labored so effectively in this province, I order that this book which he 
left, be conserved in the library of this college of Manila, where those who desire of its good 
studies may aid themselves. Manila, January 25, 1636." This paragraph, together with 
the above title-page, indicates that this copy was made at the instance of Juan de Bueras. 
Considerable use of this MS. was made by its present owner, in his edition of Colin's Labor 
evangelica (Barcelona, 1904). There are partial transcripts in R. A. de la H. (Mufioz 
Collection); and in the Lenox branch of the New York Public Library. The second, 
which we describe, appears to be a duplicate or a transcript of the partial transcript made 
by Mufioz from Chirino 's MS. about 1800, which transcript rests in the R. A. de la H. in 
Madrid. Of it, Mufioz says: "To this point, the index of this work, which must consist 
of two volumes, one of which is owned by Don Manuel de Ayora, which includes the first 
three books. It is written on quarto paper from China. The copy is corrected by the 
author himself, and signed at the end. Under this is a note in his handwriting ""Revised 
and corrected by the author himself in Manila, April, 1618. Pedro Chirino." There are 
about 700 leaves in an excellent and clear cursive letter. It proceeded from one of the 
Jesuit houses in Sevilla, where Ayora bought it, as he himself told me, when under the title 
of duplicates, very many good books and various MSS. were bought and stolen. Collat- 
ing with this MS. and its index, the Relacion de las Tslas FilipinaSy y de lo que en ellas hart 
travajado los Padres de la Comp^. de Jesus, an imprint of Rome, 1604, in 4°, I have found 
that the Relacion is, as it were, a compendium of the Historia, or more properly, the latter 
which was written later is an extension of the former, and in many places, a literal copy. 
But the first part of the Historia (since we do not know whether he wrote the second part) 
must take up to the year 161 1 or 161 2, while the Relacion only takes up to July, 1602, when 
its author left Manila for Roma, where he signed it March 5, 1604. I shall state the result 
of the collation, advising that the parallel chapters will be noted, those of the Historia 
preceded by a Roman number denoting the book. I. 3 =i« In the Historia, much 
longer, where are told succinctly the navigation of Magallanes, E. Gomez, Comendador 
Loaysa, the vessels of Cortes in 1527, and three other fleets through the strait; while the 
last mentions only the last of the archbishop of Palencia in 1540, that of Villalobos in 
1543 from Nueva Espana, and that of Legaspi. III. 8, 9, 10=15, 16, 17. Literally the 
same, except a few additions and slight corrections in the chapters in the Historia. III. 14, 
15=20, 21. 14=20 exactly. 15=21, in part identical, but in the Historia, the matter is 
treated more at length and divided into sections. III. 16=22. In part identical, but 
with additions in tht Historia. III. 21=46. All of the matter of the -R^/dicion is put 
into the Historia, and much is added in the latter. III. 20=30. Although agreeing in 
title, they are very different in substance, and the history is much better. III. 22=31. 
Very different, and with comparison much longer in the H/5/or/<3. III. 25=33. Much 
in the Historia taken from the Relacion, but changed and greatly bettered. III. 28=34. 
Same as the preceding. This is also general. The prologo is addressed 'To the 
Rev. Fathers of the Society of Jesus of the Filipinas. ^ Begins 'Quien lo ha provado sabe 
bien . . . lo q^. ba del q^. se nacio en la fee.' He says that obedience obliged him 
to write this history." Muiioz gives a copy of the list of chapters for the first five books; 
(booki, containing 32 chapters; ii, 26 chapters; iii, 33 chapters; iv, 40 chapters; v, 53 
chapters); book ii, chapter ii (Descripcion de la Ysla de Manila, y otras, Comarcas) 
and iii (Las naciones q^. havitan la i^. de Manila, y sus Costumbres); book iii, chapter 
xxiv (De la isla de Bohol), chapter xxv (El modo que los Filipinos tenian en amortajar y 
sepultar sus difuntos), chapter xxvi (Del Tavon), and chapter xxvii (De las herencias y 
subcesiones de los Filipinos); book i, chapter xiv (Apuntamientos breves de Algunas cosas 
de la China, hechos por el P. Alonso Sanchez en la Corte de Espana); book iii, chapter 
XV (De la falsa Religion Gentilica: idolatrias, y supersticiones de los Filipinos), chapter 
xvi (De las idolatrias que se descubrieron en S^. Juan del Monte y su remedio). In all 
32 folio leaves of small writing. Bound into a volume which was bought from O. Rich, 
and called Spanish-American Collection. Valuable as throwing light on Chirino's method 
of writing, and forever settling the authenticity of the date 1604 as the publication date 
of his Relacion.

It is mentioned by San Agustin, who, however, commits the error of saying "Tagala," 
instead of "Pampanga." It is accompanied also by some sermons by the same author. 
Coronel, who went to the Philippines in 1606 and died in 1630, wrote various devotional 
works in the Pampango language, some of which were published (see Perez, CaidlogOy

A long notarial document consisting of 27 leaves in our transcript. I. Statement by 
the above regarding the duties imposed on Philippine merchandise, and petition that the 
additional two per-cent duty be repealed as being too onerous. July 27. 11. Royal 
decree concerning collection of duties in Manila. Madrid, August 26, 1633. This is 
followed by an act by the governor, Cerezo de Salamanca, dated July 21, 1634, ordering the 
observance of the decree. On July 23, accordingly, it was proclaimed. III. Statement 
by the royal officials regarding the gift of 4,000 pesos presented to the treasury by the city 
for the year 1632. IV. Statement by the fiscal Juan Fernandez de Ledo; and petition 
that above decree be obeyed. V. Order by the governor to register the goods in the 
ships about to sail in accordance with the decree. July 27. VI. A petition by the royal 
officials of the above date, asks that five per cent be collected on all the goods. That same 
day the governor orders the evaluation of the cargo to be made on the five per-cent basis, 
so that the ships may sail by August i, even if only with the food necessary for the voyage. 
VII. Request made to governor, and allowed, for the citizens to meet in open cabildo to 
consider the matter on the following day, July 28. VIII. The sense of the meeting held 
on the twenty-eighth was that it would be loss and ruin to the merchants if they were com- 
pelled to pay the additional two per cent; and that with the high duties of Nueva Espana, 
the three per-cent duty was sufficient. At a meeting of the Audiencia July 28, all votes were 
in favor of remitting the two per-cent duty for that year in order that the vessels might not 
sail without cargo, as that would be more detrimental to the king than the non-collection 
of the two per cent. Accordingly on July 29, the governor decided to admit the petition 
not to collect the two per-cent duty that year.

Tournon was sent as papal legate to China. It covers in general the years 1635-1742. 
In great part it is still unpublished. The various documents are collected under the 
following divisions: I. From the Chinese missions before Tournon 's voyage. II. Per- 
sonal letters of Tournon; collection of his expedition. III. Tournon's voyage from 
Cadiz to Pekin. IV. Sojourn of Tournon in Pekin (1705, 1706); return from Pckin to 
Macao (1706, 1707). V. Tournon's sojourn in Macao from June, 1707, to his death, 
June 8, 1 7 10; as well as all matters relative to his death. VI. Letters from and to Tour- 
non. VII. Events in China and condition of the questions concerning the rites up to the 
time of Tournon 's death. VIII. Angelita: his youth; travels with Tournon; sojourn 
in Macao; return voyages to Manila, Mexico, and Rome; etc., until 1736. IX. Letters 
from foreigners in regard to personal matters. This magnificent collection contains 127 
pieces, many of which are subdivided into many parts. Many of them are written from 
Manila, and treat of Philippina. Lack of space does not permit an individual listing of

Manila where he became master of novitiates. In 1639 he went to the Moluccas as com- 
missary provincial, and labored in the kingdoms of Manados, Calonga, and Tabuca, 
returning to Manila in 1645. After that period he served in various capacities in the 
Philippines until 1653, when he left for Spain to vote in the general chapter, but died at

Transcript made for Eduardo Navarro, O. S. A. Various documents are enclosed with 
this letter. 

Colin, Francisco, S. J.: — Relacion de la llegada a Filipinas, de muchos 

Religiosos, i Christianos, desterrados del Japon. 

This is a MS. copied or drawn from Colin's Labor evangeUca. Cited by Gonzalez Bar- 
cia, Epitome (Madrid, 1737, 1738), ii, col. 637, as existing in the royal library at Madrid.

malucas: y Historia de el Archipielago maluca desde su descubrimiento 
asta el tiempo presente. Undated. Madrid; B. N.; MSS. 3002. 

The old pressmark is J. loi. Consists of eight books as follows; I. Descripcion delas 
Philippinas, of eight chapters. II. Descripcion de las islas de Maluco y otras adjacentes, 
of two chapters. III. De el descubrimiento de las Philippinas y Malucas, of five chap- 
ters. IV. De el convenio sobre la conquista de las Malucas, entre castilla y Portugal, 
tratasse de el derecho, de el Rey de Castilla, y lo q intervino para el convenio, of 3 chap- 
ters. V. De las espediziones de los castilianos al Maluco, y varios suzessos de ellas, of 
eleven chapters. VI. Prosiguense los susessos de el Maluco, of nine chapters. VII. 
Prosiguense los suzesos de Maluco desde q los ingleses y olandeses entraron en las malucas, 
of eighteen chapters. VIII. De la conquista de Maluco asta el tiempo presente, of thir- 
teen chapters. The MS. is undated, but it must be later than 1663. It is a folio of 444

occidentales Continua la de Antonio de Herrera el . . d Pedro fernandez de Pulgar." 
An extract from the Prologo is as follows: "In the description of the Philippinas, I follow 
Father Colin almost literally in his Historia^ as he is a modern and diligent writer of the 
year 1643 [Colin's work was published in 1663]; and in the history of the Malucas, I follow 
the ancient writers, and the said Father Colin. . . Argensola wrote the history of the 
Malucos, and very well. I write it here in detail in order to extend it to the present time; 
and in order to confirm their discovery, I compare the Portuguese histories with the Cas- 
tilian, and set forth in full amplitude the right of the kings of Espana because of the justi- 
fication of the operations there exercised."

ants, and in fact all classes.
